Will share info (Some back to late 1700's) of Vaculcik, Vanek, Simonik, Mericek, and others in many of the small villages around Val. Klobouky. Trying to verify a 26 May 1907 marriage date of my gparents, possibly recorded at the village of Stitne V. Vlari. No response after two queries there. Several other villages replied with no such record entry. Trying to locate the death date & burial place of Liya (Louis) Vaculcik born 15 Apr 1889 who is shown in the 1917 WW1 Draft Registration @ Tabor, SD. Also interested in Hudek family of that area. Thanks

http://mapy.atlas.cz/mapa.asp will bring up a map with Praha in the center. To get to Val. Klobouky, you want to go to the southeast, so click on the "JV" by the red ball in the upper left corner of the screen. Brno should now appear lower right. Hit JV again. On this map, click on Zlin itself, and V.K. appears halfway between Zlin and the lower right corner of the map. Now each time you click on V.K., it gets closer until you can almost see a few Sucha's sitting on their porches. The map scale is at max: 1:100 000. Neat, eh? You can move about the area by clicking at various places on the map. To print, go to "Tisk Mapy". There's a map ledgend also.

Careful with your clicking....you could easily end up in Tegucigalpa, Honduras, or worse..Upper MI.

Have fun,

If you're interested in the history of Val. Klobouky, I'll send you photo copies of what I gleaned from books while we were in SLC, UT some years ago. Unfortunately it's in Czech with many abreviated words. The year 1241 is mentioned, but I haven't tried to translate any of the village info. I trace to about a dozen villages and twenty surnames all in the immediate area. The V.K. church records go back to the late 1700's. Are you aware of the CZ and other maps online?
Are you also aware that there are two Suchma's, both engineers, living in Val. K? Just a few km to the south are two more Suchma's in Brumov-Bylnice. Incidently, my dad was born in nearby Brumov on this date, 16 June 1909. Our fax is built into the computer, but there's probably a way for us to scan info and e-mail it. If not, then I can snail-mail if you like.

Interested in Information on Vanek Surname

John, I'm totally new at this and have limited information right now and have a great interest in pursuing. My grandfather, Paul Vanek was born 5-20-1885 somewhere in Austria-Hungry. Per the copy of his social security application his father was John. Unfortunately his mother's maiden name was listed as unknown.

I believe he married my grandmother, Anna Ovichka (sp??) before moving to the states..Here I'm not clear on if they went to Canada first, then to the U.S nor do I have a timeframe for this. They wound up in Hastings-on-the Hudson, in New York. If you have anything you are willing to share with me on the Vanek's, please e-mail me..it's Annavanek@netscape.net. THANK YOU

Andy,

E--mail me with your home address, and I'll send you the research from the Brno Archive. For a while I was e-mailing a Vaculcik living in Prague, but he hasn't written for more than a year. I had already translated all of the research, but he had also translated some of it and typed it out in English which is something I didn't do because my typing ability is limited to one finger.

None of my family names match those you are researching but I still have family in Valasske Klobouky and Lacnov. My mother's father's family Sudrla came from this area and her grandmother Sebak was from Stitna. They first settled in Wilber NE but moved to South Dakota to Dante, Kimball and Platte. My mother's mother's brother was also married to a different Sudrla family who may be related to the Hudeks. In Platte they were friend with the Hudek family and some members of the Hudek family still live there.
There are several of the South Dakota Cemetaries that are on line. My mother's family attended a Czech Catholic church in Bendon SD. I know Geddes had many Czechs buried in their cemetaries also.
I haven't made any connection to the Hudek family but when we visited Moravia our family took us to villages in the Valasske Klobouky area where we thought our relatives were from. They knocked on doors and asked around for us. One home was owned by a Hudek who lived in a Sudrla house and had pictures of the Hudeks and Sudrla's from Platte and Derby CT. So you may wanted to try some of those cemetaries in SD.
