Hello,
does anyone have anything on the Franz family in Bohemia, specifically the area around Horni Stare Mesto as it is now called in Czech republic (called Ober-Alstadt, in the Arnau region during the timeof the German Bohemians)
My g-g-Grandfather Franz Franz was born in Ober-altstadt in abt 1850-1860. He married Theresie/Theresa Drescher (born 1862 at Hermannseifen in the Hohenelbe (High Elbe) region of Bohemia. I have parents for neither of them.

They had nine children Marie, Frank/Franz Junior, Augusta, Oswald, Alfred, Aurelia (Sister Stanislaus) Irma/Irmengard, Hedwig (Hazel) and Rudolph. The family emigrated to the USA in 1906 and settled in Iowa after a short stay in New York.

any leads will be much appreciated!

Thanks
