The family trees listed here have one thing in common: immigrant ancestors
who left the Czech Crown Lands of the Austro-Hungarian Empire (Bohemia, Moravia, Silesia & Slovakia) for a better life and settled
the fertile black-land soils of Texas. Here we celebrate our precious
Researching the Trees
The surnames in the list only reflect the starting family names. There are literally hundreds of names represented in these databases.
You may be tempted to do the quickanddirtything and enter a surname into the search box. Nothing wrong with that. Go ahead!
But you do yourself and the researcher a disservice if you don't go through each of the databases with a finetoothed comb.
Surname spellings were not standardized until the 20th Century. So, you could try entering spelling variations into the search box, but I bet you'd find even more variations by just looking through the family trees!
The researchers have spent countless hours and mucho dinero gathering and documenting the history of their families. Being of Czech descent, they're also very generous and have chosen to share that hard work with you on this website. They know that sharing is one way to make this a better world. I hope you'll take a moment to click on their email link and send them a note of appreciation.
