      Hi y'all
      Just joined this group and expect to check it often.  I'm an avid
      polka fan and always make the National at Ennis. I often need info
      on who's playing where in Texas. I've found several sites but it is
      often difficult to separate wheat from chaff. I will be in the Fort
      Worth area this month (January) and would like to know if there is a
      dance anywhere around. Any information would be a help. Thanks, Dean

        Since we've had so many new members introducing themselves, I thought
        I'd join the crowd; I joined the list during the summer. My name is
        Heidi Bludau, originally from Hallettsvile, Texas. For those of you in
        the area, Wink and Ida are my parents.
        My mother's family is Czech, full of Hrncirs, Gallias, and Horaks.
        I currently live in Bloomington, Indiana and am a graduate student in
        Anthropology. My area of interest is post-socialist transition to the
        European Union, working primarily in the Czech Republic. I'm in my
        second year of studying Czech and am enjoying learning how all those
        wonderful words I heard growing up fit into reality.
        I am starting to build my network in Northern Moravia, in preparation
        for doing research there in a year or so. If you have any connections
        you'd like to share, I'd love to hear from you.

            Hi!!
            I am a new member and sent a post about a week ago, but never saw it,
            so I will try again. I am not from Texas, nor were my Czech ancestors,
            but it was suggested to me that this would be a good group from which
            to learn Czech customs, culture, etc. I am eager to see the postings
            and to learn more about a segment of my family that I don't know much
            about. The surnames are: JINDRA, KOVARCIK (or KOVARICK), NOVY,
            HANZLIK, HINCHICK. I also have JENSEN and HANSEN on that line, but I
            suspect those are Danish. My ancestors came into NYC about 1900, and
            ended up in Omaha, Nebraska. Any of this sound familiar to anyone?
            Thank you for including my in your group!!

                I am fairly new at Genealogy and don't know much about my mother's Czech family.  They were very close-mouthed about the past.  It's been interesting exploring my roots, and finding all these different cultures that I didn't know anything about before.  I am a real Heinz 57  --  not too many nationalities that aren't in my background and what isn't in mine, my husband has, so our kids are a real "mess".  I do remember my mother talking about kolaches  -- what exactly are they?  Her father's stepmother was 100% Czech, so my mom knew much more about the culture.  Unfortunately she passed away in 2001  --  there are so many things I wished I had asked her while I could!!  I really miss her

                    Thanks for responding.  Yes, I will try the search for Nebraska and also Colorado, which is where I live.  I did check out two books from the library this AM on Czech/Bohemian history.  Am looking forward to reading them. 
                    My mother spent years trying to duplicate something she ate as a child.  I bet, from your descriptions, and others, it was kolache.  She would search out poppyseed recipes and try them, but never did find anything that was right.  Her family was never much for talking about the past and never kept much either in the way of documents, photos, etc.  I'm not sure she knew much more than I do and that isn't much!!
                    Thanks for the info and suggestions.
                    Best wishes,

                      There is a group of us Czechs here in San Antonio , who are members of Bexar Co. CZ Heritage Soc.

                       

                      The State Czech Heritage Society meeting will be held here in San Antonio on July 26th with a Genealogy conference with several good speakers.

                       

                      Nancy, I had lived in the Omaha , Neb area for three years ’97-2000.  The people there were surprised about the large number of Czechs here in Texas and how active the group was.

                       

                      My wife, Myrna and I attended the Ms CZ-SK Queens Pageant in Wilber , Neb last Aug.

                       

                      I hope you might have time to attend the San Antonio meeting.
