Surnames: vorak , dlouhy spellings
AM I the first to use this board? I grew up in Cedar Rapids and miss the sweet sound of czech names. Soundex gives different codes for dvorak and vorak and silly alteratives such as dooley and dilly for Dlouhy. I've found some records spelled dlohe, dloha, and dlohea, and the voraks themselves used vorak, varak, and warak. I'm looking for immigration and naturalization records , the varaks in 1878 and the Dlouhys in 1867, and also I can't yet find census records before 1880, and for the varaks before 1900 which would help me look for naturalization records. Does anyone know of Lisnia, Moravia, 1878 ? Ive looked at old and recent maps with no luck yet

Hi there,
I have DLOUHY in my extended family.
Emil DLOUHY, b. 1898, married Helen EARSA in 1916 in Iowa.

Emil's father was Joseph DLOUHY and his mother was Josephine VOTROUBEK. Helen's parents were Charles & Helen BENESH EARSA.

The BENESH's are in my direct line. They are from Bohemia, though I do not have a town name.

I know other DLOUHY researchers.

Just posted to your query on Moravia's board.
I would say that DVOR'AK and VARAK (Vorak) are two different surname unless your ancestors were originally Dvorak.
Take a look in http://linktoyourroots.hamburg.de
DVORAK, VARAK and DLOUHY list in Moravia's region of CZ's phone book. http://phone.quick.cz
No W in Czech alphabet. The English Y makes the J sound.
Have you heard of Leo Baca's 9 volumes Bohemians to America? Your ancestors could be in there.
