    I will be visiting the Czech Republic in June 2006 with my mother, and sister and can use any help in locating relatives by the name of Zadrazil
    in Kutna Hora. My grandmother's relatives were from Kutna Hora and
    emigrated to the USA in the 1880. My father last visited with them in
    1947 while serving in the US Army in Europe.

    My Rihacek relatives in Kuzelov, Moravia have been previously located by
    a great aunt, and they still live their home towns of over 100 years ago.

    I still have elderly Zadrazil relatives in Long Island, NY who last visited them in the Czech Republic in 1970s.

    Would a telephone book be a good start for Kutna Hora. Please advise.

    Try Enter the surname in the field marked Příjmení (probably you will want to uncheck the box marked Používám diakritiku, as it seems you don't use diacriticals, otherwise enter the name as "Zadražil"). Then enter the city name (Obec, Kutna Hora, or Kutná Hora with diacriticals). There was one listing there, a Milan Zadražil.

    Thanks for the information, I will try the telephone search engine. Previously, I tried googling the name Zadrazil and it came up with some
    names in Austria and Germany as well as the Czech Republic. It does not
    appear that the Zadrazil name is a very common name like Smith or Spacek. In fact, there are not many listings for the name Rihacek in the
    USA, over half are direct blood relatives and cousins. Fortunately my
    grandparents were incredible savers, so I still have their immigration
    documents from 1880's to 1920's.

    Thanks for the information. It may narrow my search along with some
    addesses that my elderly Zadrazil relatives possess. My maternal great
    grandmother returned to the Czech Republic after her husband died and
    was still living in Kunta Hora, in 1947. She was never quite fond of NYC,
    even though they lived in the Yorkville Section of Manhattan that was
    inhabited with Germans and Czechs.
