Joseph RAZ was from Pisek, Bohemia and came to America in 1896 to Chicago. He married Marie ZIONY in 1902. They were married by the congregation of free thinkers. Does anyone have any information on the family with this surname? Does anyone have infrmation about the free thinkers?

Check out or for Bohemian Free Thinkers. Once there click on Freethinkers.
Surname RAZ lists in Jihocesky obvod (Pisek area ) but none in Pisek.
5 ZIONYs did come thru Ellis Island to America. (I bet that is a miss( something) name) They were going to an uncle Josef ZIVNI.
