Sorry, I just found out from my father, my grandfather's name should be Max Engel, not Engle. he also had a brother called Erwin Engel, and Frederick Engel.

Eso, didn't you post a funny song about that town or is that my bad memory? :? 8)


I'm not sure, but I don't remember any funny song about Jičín.


Here's the post I was referring to, I guess the town name is bažin. I was way off! :oops:

And you have no idea, how much ;)
"Z bažin" means: from swamp.

Bažiny is Czech word for swamp :)
