        I would check out another source on the ethnicity. My s-i-l's family
        talked about their Bohemian grandfather who turned out to be a Rusyn from
        Circ in what is now Slovakia.

            Czech-Bohemia (including Moravia 1849-1918) was a
            Austrian kingdom (10th century-1918)
            Part of the Österreichisch-ungarische Monarchie, or
            or in English, Austro-Hungarian Monarchy (1867-1918)
            It was an Austrian Kröneland (province)
            Both German and Czech languages were used.

            Mähren => Maehren => Marin => Moravia.
            Mähren was an Austrian Kröneland located east of Böhmen (Bohemia).
            Its capital was Brünn (Brno).
            Mähren had been a separate crownland until 1849 when it became a part
            of Böhmen (Bohemia) together with Österreichisch-Schleisen
            (Austrian-Silesia).

            The Austrian Habsburgs, accustomed to being imperial, assumed the title
            of Emperor of Austria in 1804. Later, the "dual-monarchy" was
            established, with the Habsburgs as Emperors of Austria and Kings of
            Hungary, the combined realm being known as "Austria-Hungary".
