Ahoj Ms. Pustková,
I received your contact information through the TéxasCzech Yahoo Users Group and I write in English as my facility with Czech is limited.
My name is Pavel Kůrečka. I am descendant of immigrants from Veselí Nad Moravu and Vnorovy. I have been researching my family ancestry from there and am in regular contact with family in Vnorovy.
I also have a listing of many who came to the US from Vnorovy though Ellis Island - including my paternal grandfather and grandmother, so I am familiar with the Ellis Island database..
However, I am not in the Téxas area. My family came to the state of Michigan.
If you are interested in collaboration, please be in contact.

Subject: [TexasCzechs] Bachelor's thesis - Czechs in Texas
Date: Thursday, February 7, 2013, 10:03 AMDear Sir or Madam,
I am writing to you with large request. My name is Lucie Pustková and I come from Czech republic. (I am writing in English since I don't know if you still speak Czech). I have been studying history and Czech language for three years. In this year I would like to graduate from university in Brno. As the theme of my Bachelor's thesis I chose The emigration to Texas in the second half of 19th century. I am looking for some contacts (e.g. e-mail adress) for descendants of czech families that emigrated to Texas from North Moravia.
I would like to ask you for cooperation and help with my thesis. I want to focus on these issues: if the families prospered, if they managed to do better or worse than in the Czech republic. If you were willing to collaborate with me, it would be very helpful.
I look forward to hearing from you.
P.S. I thank very much to all the people who sent me a reply!However, I would be glad if someone else would respond to me. I need more contacts:-)
