Genealogical Recording of Bohemian Birthplaces
What is the correct way to record our ancestor’s birth places in our genealogical databases? My ancestors were born in South Bohemia which is now the Czech Republic and was relatively recently Czechoslovakia with definite dates. However, my great-grandparents were born in 1843 and 1849 and some historical documents list them as born in Bohemia and some in Austria. Should their birth places be recorded as Bohemia, the Austrian Empire or the Austrian-Hungarian Empire? Thanks!
