Hi everyone, Long story short: we have prayer books around from my great-grandparents. We are in the midst of trying to find out if we are Czech or Slovak. I, myself, have been told my whole life that we (the kids and my mom. As my dad is not of the same nationality.) are Czech (or "Czechoslovakian" as they say sometimes). I've always been proud of being Czech.. But lately with trying to search through family trees for distant relatives who still live there, i've only found confusing facts that say that we might be Slovak. That would be devastating for me, as I've always been proud of being Czech, as I said before (maybe I'm silly.. Or maybe some people understand with their own love of country type thing.). Does anyone know a way that I could find out for sure?? Okay.. so that wasn't so short as I thought it was going to be. But as I was saying before i rambled, we have prayer books here in Russian and Czech/Slovak from ancestors. Now, Czech and Slovak look pretty much the same to me. I need help on discerning which one it is.. Here is a small excerpt from the two books. (the books are very old so some letters are somewhat hard to discern). Book 1: "Pred fwiatočným dňom Wel't'onočným, wediac Ježiš, že priffla jeho hodina, prejft'. z tohoto fweta t' Otcu, milujúc fwojich, onižto boli na fwete: milowal jich až do ft'ončenia." Book 2: "Za času strašného prenasledovania Židov skrze Antiocha žil v krajine judskej kňaz Mathatiáš s piatimi synmi svojimi." Can anyone help? Thanks.
