ARCHIVES from http://actapublica.eu/ .
This website holds the Czech records for Birth, deaths and marriages.
There currently is no index so the research has been collected by visually
scanning the archives for the Blahnik family in Czech. This is an
ongoing project and so far the parish of Kdyne is the first area in the
Blahnik Pocket to be researched for genealogy. There is information to
help others to navigate the records and get a basic understanding to interpret
old German Script and some basic translations for Latin, German Czech.
1. Kdyne Parish from the Czech Republic,
Plzen in the District of Domazlice. There is currently a website one can access to view
the Czech Records.
