  • Well, folks, the Czech City Guide Books I spoke of are all published in the Czech Republic, but they are in English.

At the...

  • On from New Orleans to Texas: Over the years this changed -- and also depended on funds available to the traveler as well as final destination in Texas. Some tickets purchased in Europe were actually "through" trips from Bremerhaven, Le Harve or Southhampton to New Orleans to Texas with multiple changeovers. Some tickets were simply to New Orleans with the immigrant finding his own...

  • Bohemian Invasions of "Germany" There being no "Germany" until 1871, it's a tough call -- and technically, yes, Czechoslovakia never invaded Germany since both are modern constructs -- yet -- do not confuse the past 100 years with the long history of European skulduggery -- no country or people in Europe is innocent -- some were better at the slaughter, some more organized, and...
