Like Judith, I am also looking for a researcher in Ostrava
(Morava). Is there someone who can read, write, and speak
English? Both my husband & I had grandparents who
lived in different "suburbs" of Ostrava in the late 1800's
and early 1900's.

Hello I have been piddling with this for several years myself. I have found that my ancestors may have come from Witkowitz suburb of Ostrava. Might have been a bit steel mill area. However, to date have no info on how to get into the local records. I understand that the Communists had a very elaborate family recording system, but nobody knows now who is is charge or how to get into this stuff. I also would need somebody who could read and translate. Would be willing to pay for the services. Please pass this on if applicable. Thanks Bernie Hranitzky Yoakum, Texas

HAVE FOUND A RESEARCHER IN OSTRAVA

Bernie,
I have hired Pathfinders International to do my research in
Ostrava (www.pathfinders.cz). They received the info
I have on our ancestors 2 weeks ago, but I have not yet
heard back from their Prague office if anyone has started
the research. I was told that they could start immediately
after receiving my advance payment in their office in
Olympia, WA.
My grandfather worked in the Witkowitz Ironworks in 1907/08 when he was 13/14 years old. There are photos of the works
at: www.fotonoviny.com/fotonoviny/art.asp?ida=311
Photos and other information on Ostrava can be found at:
www.ostrava.cz
If you think you might like to hire Pathfinders, e-mail them
at info@pathfinders.cz

To whomever sent the web sites for marriage records:

Wow! What a great site! It would be fantastic if we could see all kinds of records like that--straight from the books. I am not sure of upi are asking if someone is still interested in finding a researcher in Ostrava, or if you were just replying to the person who was looking for that specific marriage record.
I originally asked about a researcher in Ostrava but did use the Pathfinder people back in 2002. I would have to look through my OBROK records to see what else I might want to find. I think I still needed a birth record for a WYSOCKI great-grandmother. This message should actually go in the Czech Republic Message Board, not the SEVEROMORAVSKY board.
Please contact me directly.

Oh My Gosh! I am SO grateful for this! I have been writing and searching for 20 years but it is so difficult in another country to get a response.

I am so out of my element in CZ. I assumed that my grandparents went there to work (both are from Poland) so I have/had no connection there at all. I did not know where they went. All my grandmother's church record in Poland said was that her records were sent for from "the church over the next hill" so she could get married. Looking in CZ and Ostrava was looking for "a needle in a haystack". You have truly blessed my day with this find.

If I can ever do anything for you, please let me know.
