My family comes from Southern Bohemia where multiple ancestors can be found in the earliest records available. Both Czechs and Germans are equally represented on both sides of my family.
My parents ended up deemed too German or not enough Czech at the end of WW2 and as a consequence I grew up in Germany.

I am currently researching my Bohemian lineage of my Schwartz family, my great grandmother on my mother’s side. Like you, this family was a border of Germany. Untergrafenreid and Obergrafenreid which no longer exist on the Czech Republic side. Grafenreid today is close to the city of Waldmunchen, Germany. What is a good source of the Czech names of villages that no longer exist? This is my direct mitochondrial line. Interestingly enough, on 23 & Me, my 87 year old mother and myself, and my daughters are finding that refugees from the break-up of the former Czech Rep., Slovenia, and Herzog. are distant DNA relatives. Here are my female direct line surnames: Mom is Kraemer (Irlach, Germany), Walsh Grandmother, Schwartz great, Wutz 2nd great, Kisl, 3rd great. MaryDon Beeson

I come desperately seeking translation help.from you. I have very basic understanding of German,but have fallen very short of translating a record given to me by my cousin. We suspect it too be her grandmother's baptism record but it is in Germán. I humbly ask for your assistance in possibly translating important information for me.
If you have spare time,kindly see Pruzinsky-8 for the document in question.
