Dear Genners -
I have a two-part question which isn't strictly speaking genealogy, but some
clarification would be appreciated.
The general question is: at what point did the language spoken in what's now
Moravia change >from Czech to German?
Was it after 1526 when the Czech lands were incorporated into the Hapsburg
The more specific question is: at what point did the Moravian towns acquire
German names - such as Brno/Brunn, Kostel/Podivin, Jihlava/Iglau etc.
I need this information, if any is forthcoming, for a talk I'll be giving
later in the year.
