Czech Republic Civil Registers, 1874-1937
Civil registration records of births, marriages and deaths from the Hlučín (Hultschin, Hulczyn) area in the Moravian-Silesian region of the Czech Republic. The area formerly belonged to the Duchy of Troppau but was divided in 1742 between Habsburg Austria and the Prussian province of Silesia. At the end of World War I it was made part of Czechoslovakia, returned to Nazi Germany in 1938, and restored to Czechoslovakia in 1945. The originals are housed in the Opava district archive, Czech Republic.
