I have the index of obituaries for the Denni Hlasatel, a major Bohemian
newspaper published in Chicago, Illinois, from around 1871 through 1995.
I am willing to do look ups for people who think their relative died in
Chicago. The information given is name and date of death. After getting
this information, the person would have to order the newspaper via microfilm
on inter-library loan from either their local library or from the Illinois
State Historical Society in Springfield, Illinois. Contact Elinor

I have a book that contains ONLY Czech census records for Decatur
county, Kansas. The book was created as part of the Ethnic Heritage
Studies program at Fort Hays State University, Hays, Kansas in May, 1979.
The title is "Early Pioneer Families In Decatur County,
Kansas" by Lillian Shimmik, however, the census records included
cover only the Czech settlers. I believe the book is out of print. Pat
The Czech Census records in the book are:
United States Census of 1880, Decatur, KS
Kansas State Census of 1885, Decatur, KS
Kansas State Census of 1895, Decatur, KS
Kansas State Census of 1905, Decatur, KS
Kansas State Census of 1915, Decatur, KS
(Please do NOT inundate Pat with requests. Like most of us, Pat works
for a living.)

Dictionary of Bohemian Parishes in the Czech Republic
This contains a complete listing of about 16.000 locations in Bohemia
(and a few special ones adjacent to Bohemia) which still have Roman Catholic
church records deposited in Czech archives; even if records were previosly
entered in another parish ("Vorpfarre") this is noted, as well as the locations
of a further 800 independent mills in the districts of Plzen (Pilsen) &
Litomerice (Leitmeritz) were added. A distinctive numbering system indicates
the archives which house the respective records. For technical reasons
the Czech accents had to be omitted.

Archives Pertaining to Bohemia in
All the Roman Catholic and Protestant records in the 6 official archives

any of this has been filmed. The distinctive numbering system coincides
