    I believe that we may have corresponded a long time ago---possibly in mid 1980's. Lots has changed since then.

    I am researching my husband's Holy line. His line is the Thomas one. Thomas had a son named Anton Holy who is my husband's grandfather. I do not have my info with me right now so I can't provide a lot of details, but I do think that we may be connected. I have done some research on the site that the other person mention, but I have not been successful in locating an exact birth place for Thomas. I did know that Jiri was from Zadverice (and even visited there this past fall), but haven't found Thomas birth records there anywhere. I will try the Vizovice location now. I have pictures that seem to connect the Holy's in Calhoun County and Harris Co/Crosby with my husband's line. Why else would his grandmother have them unless they were family???

    I will try to contact you directly.

I'm not sure if he left Zadverice, Moravia or if he died and then the family decided to go to Texas. They lived in Calhoun County and area and then in Harris Co. (Crosby and Highlands, TX).
