I have narrowed my research to this particular village through my great grandfather’s immigration papers and also his departure papers out of Hamburg, Germany in 1883. His name was Vaclav James Kronowetter.
Through Svidnice’s website and the help of Google translator, I sent an e-mail to the mayor of Svidnice. He said he would speak to a gentleman who maintains a local history of the village. That was two weeks ago. Have not heard anything back.
Has anybody else researched this village or the last name of Kronowetter?
