DIE VIER DEUTSCHBÖHMISCHEN GEMEINDEN WOLFSBERG, WEIDENTHAL, LINDENFELD UND ALT-SADOVA IM RUMÄNISCHEN BANAT

Der Großteil der Kolonisten stammte danach aus dem Kreis Klattau. Andere Auswanderungsgebiete in Böhmen waren vor allem der Kreis Elbogen, hier be­sonders die Orte Roßbach und Asch, aus denen die evangelischen Kolonisten kamen, die sich bei der ersten Ansiedlung in Lindenfeld niederließen, ferner die Kreise Pißek und Pilsen. Die bayrischen Auswanderer kamen vorwiegend aus Nordostbayern, den Kreisen Selb und Hof und aus dem Bayrischen Wald. Die zehn Siedler, die sich 1828 in Lindenfeld niederließen und aus dem "übrigen Deutschland" kamen, waren fast alle aus Sachsen, besonders aus dem Vogtland.

Four German Bohemian settlements: Wolfsberg, Weidenthal, Lindenfeld, and Old-Sadova in the Rumanian Banat.
The majority of the colonists for these settlements originate from Kreis Klattau. Other immgrants from Bohemia came from Kreis Elbogen, the villages Rossbach and Asch from whereProtestant colonists arrived with the first settlers in Lindenfeld, some were also from the Kreis Pisek and Pilsen. The Bavarian Immigrants came from North-East Bavaria (note from Aida: this is the Oberpfalz, immediately West of Bohemia and their people speak the Egerlander dialect ) they came particularly from the Kreis Selb, Hof and the Bavarian Forest (note from Aida: The Bohemian Forest, also called Sumava in Czech is the Bavarian Forest on the other side of the border). Ten settlers came to Lindenfeld from the "rest of Germany" and they all were from Saxony, especially from the Vogtland. (note from Aida: The Vogtland adjoins Bavaria and Bohemia to the North - so essentially they all came from the same larger area that most of you are researching.)
