Hi all. I do not know if it is still relevant, but Wottowa
- now Otov and Wasserau - now Ostrov are little towns in Domazlice area Plzen region in southwest Bohemia. The parish registers are in archive in Plzen.
Ubl, Tauer, Kohout, Ries are common surnames in surrounding of this towns. Lot of emigrant from this area settled down in Minnesota (new Ulm) or in Wisconsin (Milwaukee).
All the best. Tony.
