Robert - Thank You ! I am very grateful to you for the clarifications. I see there is alot more I have to learn. My mother and her twin were the only children of older parents. Not much talk about heritage or ancestors ever happened in there home. Consequently we (my mother and I ) feel as if we are starting from scratch in our search for our roots. My mother always knew she was Bohemian and that her Maternal Grandparents and One Uncle were born in "the Old Country" and that on her father's side they had also been Bohemian. You have given me a much clearer picture of 'the Old Coutry".
Could you tell me just a bit more - where was the land that you called Sudetenland?
Again many thanks for taking the time to help educate.
