Juraj1 Thanks for the update and information. I find it very interesting. My Czech ancestors were starting to see the writing on the wall and "bugged" out of there in the late 1800s-early 1900s. I've often wondered what life would have been like if they'd have stayed or if our blood line would have even survived. I do (barely) remember my Great Great Grandfather talking about "the old country" with my Great Grandfather and how much things were (although not great but), still much better here. The area they settled in here has a very large Czech Heritage that has prospered nicely.
Iowa has a very nice Czech Heritage Center. It hosted an excellent Alphonse Mucha exhibition several years ago.
