Markt Eisenstein

Markt Eisenstein, now known as Zelezna Ruda, is set in a pretty valley in the south-western Bohemian region of the Czech Republic on the German border, originally the border between Bavaria and Bohemia.

In the late 17th century, the Bavarians settled German families on the border to deter incursions from the Bohemians. In the second half of the 19th century, Central Europe was racked by political instability and deteriorating economic conditions. Many descendents of the original German settlers then immigrated to the United States.

The study website, in English only, is directed toward the descendents of the Markt Eisenstein families who settled in northern Wisconsin, in the United States, and who are interested in the origins of their German-Bohemian ancestors who were born and grew up in the village.
