Few maps on which you should be able to see Moravia and Bohemia which became Czechoslovakia and since 1993, Czech Republic.
A map of Czechoslovakia www.cgsi.org
http://en.wikipedia.org is another helpful tool in searching for history, etc.
Most of our ancestors were leaving from small villages in "old country" because of no work, hard life.
Check out this site why they were leaving. I know it is about Polish family but would apply to anyone from Moravia and Bohemia.
The present Czech Republic was under Austria's rule and present Slovak Republic under Hungary.
The LDS-Mormons have filmed the church records of Slovak Republic so no problem with the research. Unfortunately, the Czech Republic did not allow it so you can go to the archive yourself or hire a researcher in CZ for the job.
KOTASEK list in Mikulcice's phone book. I thought that we agreed that Mikulcice is the ancestral village. Remember how we were going back and forth trying to analyze and analyze?
Check in this site for PACEJKA and PACEJKOVA (ova a female) www.geoportal.sk/roep/index.php and you will see that most were in Skalica area of Slovak Republic, which is the region that the town of Holic is in. Holic is right across the border from Mikulcice.
Our people married within same region, religion and for sure same language.
