Surnames: Benesch
Have actual land settlement document from 1904 for Johan Benesch from Dittersbach. Someone said it is in the parish Lanskroun. Are there parish records online?

I am looking for possible birth record of Johan Benesch who was born May 4, 1853. (census records say he was born in Austria, Germany, or Bohemia).

Father listed as Franz Benesch, and mother listed as Anna. Probable brother named Franz. Other family listed on land settlement are Albert Benesch who was the mayor, and Rose Benesch.

Landskron, Böhmen (Bohemia) now Lanškroun, Czech Rep.:

Dittersbach in Tschechien:
Dittersbach bei Friedland, heute Dětřichov u Frýdlantu eine Gemeinde im Okres Liberec
Dittersbach bei Halbstadt, heute Jetřichov eine Gemeinde im Okres Náchod
Dittersbach in der Böhmischen Schweiz, heute Jetřichovice eine Gemeinde im Okres Děčín
Dittersbach bei Politschka, heute Stašov eine Gemeinde im Okres Svitavy
the closest to Landskron think is Stašov:
at map stated being southwest of Svitavy (at street 363 when you zoom-in, also some small lakes are there):

online-parish-records - map of Archives:
it´s area of 3 Archive Zmarsk
Archives in Czech Republic:
take 3.5 Ostböhmischer (east-bohemian)Kreis:
at archive Zamrsk now all church records are filmed, and it only has to be edited movies.
the films have good quality.
new 2010: the archive is gradually switching the rk register books online, see, Overview of up to 15.7. set :: register books
after release of the Archives of March 23, 2011 now digitized by district: Dvur Kralove (german Königinhof) and Žírec (german Schurz) in District Trutnov (german Trautenau) - this is digitized in 2012.

the links don´t work, so better you look at for the films....maybe you ask at Zmarsk-archive at their e-mail-adress in english when Stašov or Horní Dobrouč will be online.

just seen in one of your other postings that Horní Dobrouč will be more the one you looking for - stated by fritzkoe.

"Other Landskroners who lived in the Watertown area for a period of time or who married in Watertown include: Benesch, Betlach, Gritzbauch, Jansa, Kratschmer, Marek, Maresh, Markl, Nagel, Wavra, Willertin and Wurst."

"The Waterloo community:
Villages represented in Waterloo include Čermná (Böhmisch Rothwasser), Dreihöf (Oldřichovice) Hertersdorf (Horní Houžovec), Jokelsdorf (Jakubovice), Knappendorf (Knapovec), Michelsdorf (Ostrov), Rathsdorf (Skuhrov), Riebnig (Rybník), Rudelsdorf (Rudoltice), Tschernowier (Černovír) and Zohsee (Sázava).

The Pierce County Landskroners:
Although Franz Pirkl settled in Pierce County in 1855, most of the Landskroner emigrants to Pierce County arrived after the Austro-Prussian War of 1866. Many of these emigrants, both German and Czech, passed through Waterloo or Watertown on their way to Pierce County. Many Czech emigrants from Čermná (Böhmisch Rothwasser) settled here. Some Czechs traveled through Texas and not the Waterloo and Watertown areas. Other emigrants came from the villages of Heřmanice (Hermanitz), Jokelsdorf (Jakubovice), Michelsdorf (Ostrov), Ober and Nieder Johnsdorf (Horní and Dolní Třešňovec) and Sichelsdorf (Žichlínek). Among the Landskroner families eventually settling in Pierce County were the following: Appel, Beneš, Brickner, Falteisek, Fischer, Gregor, Heinz, Huebl, Jahna (Yahna), Jana (Yana), Janisch (Yanisch), Janovec, Jansa, Kabarle, Katzer, Kitna, Klecker, Kreuziger, Kusilek, Langer, Marek, Maresch, Maresh, Meixner, Merta, Motl, Nagle, Neugebauer, Nickel (Nicol), Novak, Pecháček, Pelzel, Prokscher, Raeschler, Richter, Roller, Schmeiser, Schmied, Schöberle, Seifert, Steiner, Strofus, Švec, Tajerle, Tayerle and Yanovec.
