    Haven't been here in a while. I am trying to learn Czech, again, and research ancestry in Bohemia so I got an email address and signed up to find pen pals on Seznam. One pen pal gave me a link to I entered my ancestors surnames and wrote a short inquiry. Someone emailed to me, with a map of the area and how close Nosalov is to Prague. I am trying to figure out what they said. Here is what they said;

    "Můžeš mi poslat obrázek adresy a která jména hledáš?"

    I still have problems with grammar and sentence structure. I think they said that I can email them and were wondering what names i am looking for? But what are they talking about the "obrazek"? Doesn't that mean pictures? Do you think they are saying I can email pictures of my ancestors? If so, how do I do that on Seznam?

    Could you send me picture of address and names you are looking for?

    "Picture is address" - maybe you have address written on some photo? Maybe he thinks that address you sent isn't correctly copied down?

    Or maybe he wants you marked address on map he sent?

    Would you send me a picture of the address and which names you are looking for?

    I think the person is looking for a picture of the original document from where you got the address of your ancestors, not a picture of your ancestors. He/she probably wants to make sure you have read it correctly--it's not always that easy to read such documents.

    Edit: Eso beat me to the punch! :x

    Thank you both eso and sova. You both answered so you both deserve equal credit :wink: .
    That was what I thought originally. But I could not understand what they would mean by "picture of address." The way Sova explained it makes sense.
