Thank you Evelyn, but I bet that the city you spelled Zbiroh is probably
Str^ibro which is the equivalent of the German name of that town: Mies. It
is near Pilsen. I found out that the group that went from the Klattau area
were Protestants and they left there with quite a few others from the area
of Asch and Selb, which is North and Northwest of that area along the
Bohemian Forest. It might be a good idea that those people who have
ancestors in that area and have come to a dead should check out possible
connections to those settlements in the Romanian Erzgebirge (Ore Mountains)
at Garina and Steierdorf. I am referring again to these links. Visit
them, they have very nice photographs there,
