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
