I have been researching my Bohemian ancestry for several years. Those that I have been able to find with the help of local researchers are clustered north of Pilsen/SW of Prague in the villages of Kozlany, Hedcany, Petrovice, Holovousy, Hostokryje, and Slatiny. Surnames include Balschan, Fojt, Pastor, Pauby, Pazak, Schneider, Shubert, Zetek/Zettek. My mother was a Zettek. I believe my father's family is from the same general area, but I have been unable to learn anything about them beyond my grandfather, who emigrated to the Chicago area in the late 1880s. The surname is Krejsa. I visited the area in 2001 and will be returning in August 2009. I hope to visit the area again and photograph the ancestral homes as well as the villages. The researcher provided some house numbers. My paternal grandfather operated a saloon and restaurant in Niles, IL, back in the day. I am a miniaturist, and am working on a model of a Bohemian restaurant/tavern and small inn. I'll be photographing details of the places we stay while we are traveling with an eye to incorporating them into the 1:12 model. I was delighted to find this forum and spent a goodly amount of time reading posts before subscribing. It's nice find so many kindred spirits.
