Our relatives were all expelled from Sudetenland [Morovia]after World War Two.However, our ancestry is almost exclusively from Sudetenland.So our ancestral research is not that difficult.Finding the current descendants is the challenge. The surnames and home villages are:TIXEL/DIXEL from Zechitz, Dohle and Deutsch-Hause. SCHINZEL from Römerstadt. BLASCHKE from Römerstadt and Mährisch Kotzenberg.
POPPE from Kuttelberg, Hillersdorf, Hermannstadt, Gros Stohl and Gotschdorf. ARESIN from Meedl. SONNTAG from Deutschlosen.
OHMACHT from Reschen and Ober Ullischen. JAHN From Zechitz.
