    I have the addresses of the birthplaces of GGGrandparents in Czechoslovakia, but cannot find them on a modern map. Can anyone help me? What part is the city, what part the region?

    "V Čechách" means "in Bohemia"

    I'm not sure what's "Luzi" - maybe "Luže".

    Try to write it with diacritics, please.
    Hlízov is village nearby Kutná Hora, formerly in district Čáslav.

    The word "Grunte" is German. It means estate, manor or farm. I think it refers to castle in Hlízov.

    Thank you so much for the information! This weekend we also re-discovered a picture of our ggggrandmother who was the ancestor we think was born on this estate. We have an aquaintance who may be able to translate this website for us. Thanks again.
