|In the Czech Republic there are four
places with the name Cernava. The first one is found in the district
of Jesenik, in the northern Moravian mountains called JESENIKY, it
is a hill named CERNAVA N50°10'972" E17°05'040", it could be translated
into English as ... A BLACK OR DARK HILL. The place is located close
to the border of Poland and near the town of Jesenik N50°18'05" E17°17'53"
(Map Cze 019 Jes Jeseniky #19). The second one is in the district
of Karlovy Vary which is in the Northwest part of the country and
very close to the German border and is another hill named CERNAVA.
The third and the fourth one are also hills in the western part. One
of these places may be the origin of the surname belonging to a very
small family group that immigrated to the United States in the early
1900's. If you belong to this family we would like to gather as much
information about you as you would feel comfortable sharing with us.
Our own genealogy is a very interesting subject, so please participate
in this effort as this web site is dedicated to you or TO ALL THINGS
