The land you refer to is Mähren (in German) and Moravia in Latin and English, the eastern region of the Czech Republik. I do not know how Bochtitz is called with its official Czech name, but if you don't find it out through other means or help, contact me and we'll locate it.

Have you tried the Shtetlseeker web site, or the films with the names of the Austro-Hungarian post offices, or the village names of Moravia, as available at LDS?

Bochtitz is now called Bohutice (the general Austrian Gazetteer for the 1910-census gives already both versions; then it had 697 inhabitants). You can find it between Brno and Znojmo - also in the Microsoft Encarta World Atlas on cd-rom (at least in my European edition, but it should also appear in the original US-version, I think).

As for Nemecek: you should also consider the very frequent spelling Nemetschek (germanized, of course), sometimes also Nemeczek. There even was a Charles Nemetschek, born in 1853, who came to Upper Austria directly from the USA (Lincoln, Washington) in 1902. Of course all the other people with that surname came from different districts of Moravia and Bohemia. (By the way, Nemec in Czech means a German speaking person, nemecky: something german).

Yes, Nemec means German in Czech; Nemecek is the diminutive -- 'little German'
Brno and Znojmo are in the Moravian area of Czechia -- South near Austria border.
