bump. I have shown people pictures of my ancestors and they think they look Polish or Czech and sometimes ‘Yugoslavian’. My dad has German-Bohemian ancestors and we were told he has some Slavic in him. This part of the family is very hard to trace so I don’t know. I think my ancestors mother was a Meierl/Mayerl/Mayirl but I am not sure. They would have been mostly Germans but I know it wasn’t uncommon for ethnic Germans and Czechs to marry. They were both Catholics. I’m trying to think of ways to find my ancestors. Perhaps I need the help of a professional genealogist who lives in Europe.
