I looked at those maps yesterday and they nearly blew me away. I had no idea that there would be maps so detailed from the 1800's.
I tried to figure out the mapping program. I was beginning to feel like I was on planet Mars with all the German and Czech writing. But I finally was able to see the house locations for all three villages. I used google satellite to see what was there today. Unfortunately, it looks like the houses are gone. I did see a cemetery which would be fun to visit to see if their graves could be located.
That mapping overlay program I haven't used, yet. Sounds like that is what I need to use. If it overlays the old maps with current locations, it would be much more accurate than trying to match the old maps with google satellite.
Not quite sure where to put in the house number, but I'll play around with it today and see what I can figure out.
Thank You All!!
