Hi Grandma,I'm pretty sure that Maehren is Czech for Moravia which is one of the 2 provinces? of Czechoslovakia, the other being Bohemia. (Note - I'm not sure if Moravia and Bohemia are called provinces or something else).Beau----- Original Message -----From: salvarez4@...To: TexasCzechsSent: Thursday, November 01, 2012 7:31 PMSubject: [TexasCzechs] Fwd: Chechoslovakia

Do you know whether Maelmen or Maehren is in Chechoslovakia?
I am trying to transcribe the 1880 Austin County Census and found one spelling near “Schlesing”, which I interpret as Silesia in Chechoslovakia. Could find nothing related to the two M words above which are two spellings I found in A.Com and also thought might be possible interpretations.
Any help you can give would be appreciated.
