Re: [TexasCzechs] Czech Surname HOLECEK
- I am familiar with the name HOLCEK here in Central Texas (in Bell and Falls Counties) but I do not think this is the same name as Holecek. I do not think there are any male members of the Holcek family still living in that area. I think that some of the Holcek descendants might still be found in San Antonio, Texas and in Louisiana.
