Interesting to note that this map is more detailed than the typical one I have seen in the past.

On your map Tomenable, the Kaszubi are placed where most believe they originated, while the modern day Kashubia appears to be unoccupied.

Interesting map. My grandma's village is in that little white spot between the Moravians and the Slovakians. She migrated to the US around 1930 and I have them before then in that village going back a few centuries before that. Very rare in the 6 generations before her to have people ancestors from other villages. Her family identified as Slovaks. But I wouldn't be surprised if my Bakic line had been in that village since about the time of that map. I wonder how long they considered themselves as Slovaks?
