this? She says that the correct spelling is moravice. I can't find it in
the Atlas and wonder whether what she tells me is correct. My grandmother
was from Moravitz [that's what the immigration clerk wrote down in 1914, in
Milwaukee wisconsin] Hungary.
Vilo tells me that Moravitz is in Moravia. It's hard to find a moving

The Czech Morawitz/Moravice would not have been located in Hungary.
Czech-Bohemia (including Moravia 1849-1918) was a kingdom
