My grandfather, Alois Heger, traveled from Triebendorf in Moravia to Minnesota in the U.S. in the 1885. What Czech Republic region should I be searching to find records related to his family? I know there are church records online, but I don't know how to narrow down which ones to review. I would really appreciate any help with this.
Alois was born in 1867. He spoke German (although he had to learn Czech in school). His parents' names were Franz Heger and Anna Burkert or Borchert. The family was Catholic. Alternative spellings of the name include Aloysius/Louis/Lewis and Hager/Hagar/Haeger.
