      My maternal grandmother was from Rohoznik, near Malacky. She passed
      away in 1922 at the age of 29 in the USA after her fourth
      childbirth. My 91 year-old aunt was about 7 when her mother died and
      remembers a prayer taught to her. Neither my aunt or anyone else in
      my family recognizes the language of the prayer. German was spoken
      in my Mother's/aunt'household as my grandfather was from Germany.

      I would like to give the prayer here spelled phonetically as my aunt
      remembers it.

      Bombu, Dinom, Dobru
      Einglelischka, Obrudrobula
      Tzelu, Boshu, Notz Amen

      I would like to know the language and meaning of the prayer if
      anybody knows it.

      I have also recorded my aunt saying the prayer on a digital recorder.
      If anybody who thinks they know this prayer would give me their phone
      # I could play the recording to them.
