I am especially interested in which entries are in Czech in the
Bohemia book. I understand the Moravia book is in German>.

Thanks to Susan Boyer - another fantastic volunteer - I have the
Bohemia book which has been of great help to me.

I must tell Vera, and everyone else though, that the contents give no
idea of the language of the chapters. Each chapter [and there are
about 253 chapters - two hundred and fifty three!] just has as a
title - the *place name*.

Finally there is a statistical chapter in Czech at the end
p. 729-733

The best approach would be to make an Excel file and then post the
results on our website:

Four columns: [unless you have any better suggestions?]

Title - author - brief comment re contents - language.

This is a big task and I am prepared to volunteer to start the ball
rolling by indexing the first 26 places letter A-B:

Adlerkosteletz > Bukowitz
Who will join me?

Any translation project would be massive and I cannot see how this
can realistically be done by us. I hope I am wrong. Perhaps a few
key places should be targeted first?
