Your e-mail comes at a time that I think we can both help each other. A cousin of mine was able to trace my family back to the late 1700s in Bohemia. The towns my family lived in were Trebnuska and Lhota pod Radcem.
I was in touch with other Svejkovsky families back in 1997. Thier ancestors came from the same area. If you say your family came over to Minnesota in 1923, was Marie Svejkovsky married by then? I can share with you the other Svejkovsky info. (and our family's info)
Your info. on Svejkovice is VERY intersting! I also have been in contact with a distant cousin who is leaving for the Czech Republic on Wed. and his guide/contact thinks the name Svejkovsky comes from the village of Svejkovice (which has been my suspicion since I fist did some reasearch on the name in the late 1980s). I have been unable to find it on any atlas, only Svojkovice east of Rokycany. Do you know where Svejkovice is? I did see a listing of students in a college in Beroun as coming from Svejkovice.
