Immigrants from Zděchov, Moravia

Small parish Zděchov (in fact covering just one village, Zděchov itself) is located on Czech-Slovak border in Vsetín district. It's located in the middle of Beskydy mountains, region which was left by many people because it was quite tough to live there. There are some notes about people who left to America in the registries - and here is the list.

  1. Did not realize that the Moravians in Salem, NC emigrated from Moravia. Just learning basics here. Did they come for religious reasons.
