Re: Hucek surname in Protivec, CZ area
The parish records of the CZ towns you mentioned are located in the Trebon Archives of Bohemia. These records will help you and are online at: http://digi.ceskearchivy.cz/index_main.php?lang=en

> I have a mystery on my hands. I am descended from 1 of 4 siblings (Lukas, Theresia, Mathias and John Hucek) that immigrated to the US around 1890 and settled in Shiner, TX. Two of those siblings ended up in Oklahoma, and I am from one of them. The mystery is that there is a Jakub Hucek buried in Shiner, and I can't find how he is related. He left a will naming his 2 living siblings (Blazek and Anna Vahnika), and they lived in the Strunkovice area, with Netolice also mentioned. I hired a researcher in the Czech Republic and she found Jakub's records, but she wasn't able to connect him to my line. I can't help but think that if he was in Shiner along with my ancestors, he is bound to be related somehow, but I can't figure out how just yet. I hope you can help. Thanks, Ray
