      There is a very easy translation program that can help you with these type problems--the name of the program is DICTER and can be downloaded from DICTER.NET (partner with Google so it is reliable)

      Once installed all you have to do is select the language you want to translate (like Czech to English).  When you need the translation run the DICTER program (I load it at start up so the icon is in my systems tray).  Highlight the word(s) you need to translate and click on CTRL/ALT and a pop up window appears with the translation.

      Can't translate everything but much better than nothing.

      It should help with registration and use of the data.

      It looks like the records for that area are are online here:  http://www.mza.cz/archiv-zprav.php
      There is a link on the left side of the page that looks like it will go to the archives.  It looks like this:
      When you click on it, it takes you to a sign in page.  So you would have to register first.  But when I go to the registration page, it is in Czech.  I can't read enough Czech to quickly figure out what I need to fill in. 
      I won't be on my computer for most of the day tomorrow.  But I'll check in tomorrow evening to see if anyone else has been able to get to the archives and if not, I'll try to get that registration page translated and get registered and see if I can find the record.

      I need help in finding the birth records of my grandfather Matous Levek in the Czech Republic.  My mother said that he was born in Prague, but all his records here in the States, had him from the village of Svatoborice, which is located in the Hodonin okres, South Moravian Region. He was born September 21, 1887. His father was Vavrinec Levek and mother was Antonie Nenicky.

      Thank you,
      Joe Levek
