Prague archive http://www.ahmp.cz/eng/index.html
All of its registry books are digitalized http://www.ahmp.cz/eng/index.html?wstyle=2&catalogue=1&a...

You will have to know at least approximately where he was born. There were a lot of churches and each had it´s own books, if you don´t know, you will have to go through one by one.

Do you know name your grandfather´s parents? There were two Bejna families in Nevězice. Unfortunately birth records for 1894 are not yet in archive, so they are not digitalized (last one in archive is the book from years 1874-1891.

Parish books for Nevězice http://digi.ceskearchivy.cz/DA?lang=cs&menu=0&doctre...

According to index Václav Bejna, son of Josef was born 28.6.1893. I don´t know why but many Václavs were renamed James in America (James is Jakub in Czech, not Václav), so that could be the one you´re looking for.

Unfortunately records for that year are not in archive yet so they aren´t online.

And hey, the index also says that Václav was born in Nevězice Nr. 26 - my ancestors lived in that house one hundred years ago before that!
