    I am wondering if anyone out there can tell me where these places might be in Bohemia..........From a babtismal paper 1857.....Village of Punglitz, Punglitzer Township, Panger County in the Kingdom of Bohmen. Village of Lotzlak.....Village of Grossbukemn.....Village of Craum.....Village of Wolezchec? Name is Ondricek/Hopcheck/Koeitzem/Luzicka are these names translated correctly? :roll:

    Punglitz - may be Pürglitz = Křivoklát
    Punglitzer Township = Pürglitzer Township = Městys Křivoklát ?
    Wolezchec = Woleschko = Oleško ?
    Grossbukemn = Großer Buchberg = Velký Buk (but this is a mountain) ?
    Craum = Krummau = Český Krumlov ?

    All names seem to be corrupted forms of german local names. Could you show the original?

    Try e.g. www.mapy.cz and give the czech name of the place into the input line.
    Český Krumlov

    To show the map you can place it in some public web pages and give the link.(e.g. imageshack)

    My name is Joseph Franklin Thompson. I am the 4th son of Russell and Eileen Ruth (Ondrizek) Thompson. I live just outside of Boston, Massachusetts. I have a copy of that same baptismal record of what I believe is my Gr Gr Grandfather who I am named after!

    I'm curious as to where on the family tree you sit and how we are related? Please reply to me when you have a chance at jft_921@yahoo.com or at my mailing address:

    45 Avon Street
    Wakefield, MA 01880

    It's nice to know that I'm not the only one curious about my distant relatives!
