Hi Jerry,
I have to apologize. The town spelling is actually Muzetice with a little backslash over the letter "z". My Aunt Josephine, James Tintera's granddaughter, helped me with some of my information. I also found a wonderful Czech researcher in Madison, WI who made me a photocopy of a map with the old villages Bohemian villages on it. [At the time, he was taking tours over to Czechoslovokia and would take each individual to their village of origin]. Muzetice is northwest of Pisek and slightly northeast of Strakonice. I do not have a scale on this photocopied map from the researcher. It lists each little hamlet individually, so it is much more detailed than the average map. My aunt felt that the village may have been destroyed in WWII, but we aren't sure. Perhaps it's just too small for an atlas?
I did ask for assistance in doing research with the local archives in Sedlice in 1994. Without my knowledge, they forwarded the request to Prague & did research from there. The return correspondence I received was written in "broken" English (for lack of a better word). They could not quite explain what they'd found (although it seemed not much at all) and wanted me to pay $48. I responded to them in the negative.
Short on time today, feel free to get back to me again if you have further questions.
Cheri
