What is in the Collection?

During the 1800s, Central/Eastern Europe belonged to the Austro-Hungarian Empire. At the end of World War I (1918), the Empire was divided into several countries. One of these countries was known as Czechoslovakia for most of the 20th century. At the time, Czechoslovakia was divided into three major regions: Bohemia, Moravia, and Slovakia.

The records for this collection come from the Moravia region (between Bohemia and Slovakia). There are six districts in that region: Bruntál, Frýdek-Místek, Nový Jičín, Olomouc, Opava, and Přerov.

Included in this collection are school records from the Opava State Regional Archive, Czech Republic from 1800-1953. These records are in the Czech language.

These records are written in Czech.
