Saw a posted message for the surname "ERMIS". I have Dr Simicek's two books: The Hope Has Its Name - Texas and The Pilgrims For Hope. Both written about the Czech Immigration to Texas.Many names are listed in these books. The person looking for the surname ERMIS has an outdated email contact. If anyone is researching this name let me know & I will send the info listed in the books.The places listed are: BORDOVICE, LICHNOV, MNISI, TICHA & VLCOVICE. Can't guarantee results but, anyone having ancestors from these villages I will see what is listed.
