I totally agree with Matt. I use Ancestry and most of them are set up to search other names in the family and not just the head of the family. I pick out a first name that is not so common and just put in the first name and state and you will have a lot of hits but these hits are in alphabetical order so you can quickly go through them. I also think about the Czech pronunciation and how would a non-Czech would spell it back then. Between my family and my daughter's in-laws I just search the individual counties (very time consuming). ..lois petter pereira

Since we have been discussing the difficulty of researching with Czech
surnames, I thought it would be
good to begin sharing tips and suggestions
about doing census research online using Ancestry, Heritage Quest Online,
and other services.
One tip that I have tried is to limit your search to the state and county
and then include only the person's given name since surnames are more often
misspelled than the given names.
