Anyone researching the town of Ustie Nad Oravou in Slovakia? I just found a book about it! In Slovak, but worth viewing!! I also have a book about the Chicago Slovak Worker's Society from 1915 to 1925 to share. In Slovak, but many names in it!!!
I have a historical LEXIKON with Czech, Moravian & Silesia town histories with 728 localities, 14 maps and 22 town plans. Send me your town name and I will see if it is in this book. Otherwise I have the first six volumes Karel Kuca's TOWNS AND VILLAGES IN BOHEMIA, MORAVIA AND SILESIA. That covers town names in the same areas as the other book, but thru PR(Prague). These books have lengthy information plus the cadastral map for the town. I will check for your villages in both. Then I can make copies to bring to the August 6th meeting.
Professor Frank Danes from Tacoma has just written his history in the Czech and Slovak lands and his experiences leaving it. He goes on with what happened after that! Read it for yourself. Do you know others who stories to tell (like Karol!) ? Please send them to me and I will send them on to the National Czech & Slovak Museum & Library which has their oral history project.
