Genealogy begins as an interest…

Becomes a hobby…

Continues as an avocation…

Takes over as an obsession…

And in its last stages…

Is an incurable disease.

My Czech-Texan Ancestors

This page is definitely under construction!

At this point I am still trying to decide the best way to format and set the site up.

For now the genealogy (family tree) can be found using the Gean-ealogy Family tree. Living individuals are not located on the tree for privacy and safety.

Unidentified Photos from the papers of Louis Matthew Matocha

We need help!!! Recenlty we found several boxes of papers that at one time apparently belonged to Louis Matthew Matocha, husband of Emilie Zbranek. Most of these photos would appear to be Matocha photos, but if you have a Czech-Texas Ancestor who lived in or around Plum, Fayette Co., TX one of these picture maybe of an ancestor of yours. I encourage you to look at the photos (the pages may take a short time to load because of their size). Let us know if you can identify any of them. Once they have been identified I will get the photos linked to the proper individual on the Family Tree!

Possible surnames involved:
  • Adamcik
  • Banik
  • Barta
  • Belota
  • Cegielski
  • Fajkus
  • Goebel
  • Korenek
  • Kovar
  • Matocha
  • Samohyl
  • Vacula
  • Zbranek
  • and many more!

Note: Page 6 & 7 are group photos - As I understand it a fundraiser was held in Fayette County to raise funds for Czech families in "Czechoslovakia" and the group photos are of those who participated in the fundraiser.
