The project is designed to identify and collect Jewish individuals and family with a connection to Meclov Metzling.

This town is in the Klatovsky district according to the Geni page. In German this town is called Metzling. I welcome additions to this page.
According to info from Julius Muller: The first record on the village dates back to 1115. Since 1379 it was part of Pobežovice estate. In Jewish Census 1793, there were 8 families (2x WÜRTZLER, BLOCH, WEISHUTH, HERSCHL, KLAUBER, HIRSCHWALD, GRÜNHUT). Synagogue build up in 1856, today used as firestation. Family history notes: WIRTZLER-WETZLER family lived in house no.3 and XXXV
The Meclov/Metzling community used the cemetery in Pobezovice. I (Tony Hausner) took photos in that cemetery.
This website shows the names of fallen WWI soldiers, including some from Meclov, from which perhaps some profiles can be found.
