      Theresa,
      Do you have a specific question?
      Having your grandmother born in Czechoslovakia is cause to join this group. But gives no clue to where she was from. Do you have that information.
      As for the surname Halek, this is what the 1995 Slovak Census had. As you see there are three spellings of the name. There were a total of 32 listings in 11 locations. Which makes Halek a rare name. Notice there are two sets of locations for the surname. In eastern Slovakia in the “okr.”/ districts of Bardejov and Svidnik. They are next door to each other. In western Slovakia you have the orkes of Zilina, Prievidza and Bratislava.

      Prokopovich was not in the Slovak Census, but this was. Interesting to find all of the orkes are same or neighboring your Halek orkes. Which would seem to indicate your roots could be in eastern Slovakia.
