#1--Type a country in the search box or click on the map to go to the area you want to view, for instance "Czech Rep".
Then, #2--scroll down a little, and see a timeline, from maps made in 1400 all the way to 2010, see? Slide the parameter buttons to the chunk of time you need, like 1750 to 1850 (just suggestin' ☺).
Skip #3, since by now you have an AMAZING list of maps on the right. Choose the prettiest, or the most illustrated, or whatever appeals.
|Bechin-see if you can |
find it on the map ☺
If you haven't already found that map, click here. Once you enlarge it there on the site, you'll see the town I have circled in red is Budweiss, and the blue circle is NEUHAUS, which is 4-5 miles north of Oberschlagles and Niedermuhl.
pater noster lakes. They were really a series of man-made dams for irrigation, and many are still there. You can see wooded areas, streams and mountains, and walled fortress-cities, as well as those towns that had churches, not just chapels. To think that 250 years ago with no fancy surveying equipment, someone was able to draw this art, and call it a map. Wow.
Yeah, the same web site will provide some WONDERFUL maps of Silesia, too. Stay tuned, or go look for yourself--find Falkenburg and Opole in the country just north of Bohemia. It's the region Otrembas, Mischkes, Schmolkes, and Rauschs came from ☺ COOL, huh?
LARRY, THANK YOU!
