I hope I got the accent in the right place. Neé is from the French which means "maiden name". But the Czechs also list the father's name. So everyone is correct.

Czech records are the most wonderful in the world. You frequently get 4 generations on one record, complete with house numbers. I've even seen "nemanzelsky" records with 5 generations. Everyone doing genealogy should be so lucky. Of course, this works best if they stayed in the same house for 200-300 years, but many did. In the later 19th century records, the mother's line was frequently documented a little more than the father's line. I perceive this as a way of emphasizing the importance of women. It makes me proud to be of Moravian/Bohemian lineage.
