      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.

      Bohemia is now Central and Eastern Czech Republic, Prague (Praha) being the center . Do you have any inkling of the name of the town? Dr. Q

          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".
