I forgot to say these names are not proof of German identity. In old documents my ancestors names and surnames are often written differently in that era. Sometimes in German orthography other times more akin to real Slavic names and surnames. Purely depended on priests and officials. Its not rare that same priest or official wrote same persons name and surname in two different ways. Wouldn't believe it if i saw it. :D

I have quite a few German speaking ancestors (well, they spoke German when they got to the States), but they were from Bohemia…Krasny Lez I believe is the place. What's the chance that they were also of Czech descent, but learned German because of their proximity to German peoples?
