Surname: VEITH, VEIT, FEITH, FEIT, FIGHT, FITE, VAIT, VAITH
I am searching for any Veith, Veit, Vait, or Vaith family from Bohemia.
Some Veit/h families changed there last names to similar sounding English-spellings
such as Fight, Fite, Feit, or Feith after immigrating to the United States.
There were at least three Veith immigrant families from the tiny villiage
of Knappendorf which is between Wildenschwert(Usti nad Orlici) and Landskroun(Landskron).
There were more Veith families in this area, some who probably immigrated
and I would be interested to hear from anyone who thinks that their Veith
ancestors may of come from Bohemia. Bohemian cities where Veiths came from
MAY be Hertersdorf (Horní Housovec), Jokelsdorf (Jakubovice), Knappendorf
(Knapovec), Michelsdorf (Ostrov), Rathsdorf (Skuhrov), Dittersbach (Horní
Dubrouc), Riebnig (Rybník), Rudelsdorf (Rudoltice, and Landskron (Landskroun).
