      Thanks for the response so quickly. Grandpa was Joseph. He had bothers - Frank, Jerry, Billy, Edward, Charles,John and Jerry. They were all self taught musicians. Billy was in "Ripley's Believe It or Not" 1939 for playing the longest amount of time without stopping. Charles was a child prodigy- played the violin, he married Viola who played the cello. Bill played over 151 hours without stopping. Grandparents were Vincent and Mary Franz, and Frances Helen Kropacek. She died very young. The Frances Helen line had 3 girls....Lillian Olga, Valeria and Edythe.
      Thanks. Keep up the good work!

      Do you have any other dates or locations to go along with the information. Hajek is a fairly common surname even in Texas, and there seems to be concentrations

        Do you have any other dates or locations to go along with the information. Hajek is a fairly common surname even in Texas, and there seems to be concentrations of this family name in Lavaca and surrounding counties as well as in McLennan County.
         
        I descend from Jan Hajek of Volsovice or Olsovice, Bohemia, through his daughter Terezie who married Bernhardt Berckenhoff. Several of Jan's other children -- as far as I can tell, all of them who lived to adulthood -- also immigrated to Texas.
         
        Some of the other members in this group descend from Jan's nephew Martin Hajek.

          Matt,
                  Hello!, Do you know how I can find a link into the Matrinky Archives.cz ? Any help would be appreciated. I just got back from the Czech Republic and wanted to do some more research. I visited Koprivnice(Pronounced "Kop shriv nesa") where our Raska and Mozisek family originated and Ticha,(Pronounced T-Ha) where our Konvicka Family originated. I also visted Prague, Olomouc, Novy Jicin. I had a wondeful time, a trip of a life time.
           
          Thanks,
