German Czech names

German/Czech town and village names

NOTE: The district of Landskron /Lanškroun had both German and Czech inhabitants.  Both the Czechs and the Germans had a name in their own language for each village and town.  Some names are quite similar:  Landskron and Lanškroun.  Some are not similar at all:  Ober Johnsdorf and Horní Třešnovec.  When you research your family history you need to know both names for the towns and villages.
