TERM (places): Kreis Mies, Kreis Plan, Khoan
- I'm trying to decipher a half-Czech, half-German birth certificate
from 1939 which contains some very illegible handwriting. I do have a
typewritten German transcription/translation to refer to, but I'm not
sure that whoever prepared it got everything right, either.
Does anyone happen to know the present-day name of "Kreis Mies"? It's
near Marianske Lazne (Marienbad), and there was a town there called
Rauschenbach. There's also a mention of "Kreis Plan" and a street
name that the transcriber has rendered as "Khoan" (which doesn't
sound Czech OR German to me). If anyone thinks they might be able to
decipher the German handwriting, I can post a PDF to my FTP site.
Thanks in advance,
