Actually, I will be coming to CzechRepublic in September to search out the town of my mother's family. It took my mother and me a long time to find the paperwork on my grandfather because his name was changed from Vaclav to James when he arrived in the US and we didn't know it. Grandpa had told me stories of his home to put me to sleep at night when I was a kid. He was just a kid himself when he came to the States, and I think he had a very romanticized memory of his homeland. If anyone knows of this town, Dolni Bezdekov, any information would be greatly appreciated. I think I have located it to be about 17 miles NW of Prague.
