      Dekuji pro informace on Moravia.  Leroy Janda would like to have a flyer of the
      state CHS mtg. sent to him.  Would you please  e-mail him one--I sometimes
      mess up on forwarding items.  Dekuji moc,  Robert

      The word for Moravia in German is Mahren with two (2) “..” above the “a”


      Silesia at the time in 1880 was a separate province which was part of Germany . After WWI the southern part became part of north-eastern Moravia and the northern part of Silesia became part of Poland .


      I found a number of records the persons list they came from Bohemia , Moravia , Austria and Czechoslovakia and some list Mahren. The problem is Czechoslovakia did not come about until after WW I in 1918.


      Today, many persons when you speak of the Czech Republic they will still refer it to the old name as Czechoslovakia, which became to separate country in  Jan., 1993.
