Don't know your surnames.
Rauche, Roen, Hemmerling, and Kramer are German surnames.
Dolena could be any one of many place names in many European
What was the documentation for Dolena ? Written in what language ?
In Hungarian, Czech, Slovak, Polish, other Slavic languages, and
German the letter J is pron. Y.
A Jagerdorfel is located 55 miles north of Praha at the curerent German
border at Grossschönau.
And Jägerndorf (G) was Krnov (Cz) located at the current Polish border.
After WW 2 the Czechs renamed all the German named towns to Czech names.
They also liked to give the same Czech name to multiple locations to lose
former German identity.
In 1945-1948 they expelled the 3 million Germans in Czechoslovakia and
executed 200,000 or so by starvation and summary execution.
There are hundreds of Hemmerling associated with Luxembourg, Dresden,
Germany; Austria, Canada, Saxony, Poland, and American Midwest.
