      This tree was prepared by Jan Zajicek, resident of Nyrany, Czech Republic. It updates some of the information for the Blecha families from Hlince 6.

    • Notes 


      • BIRTH: Also shown as Born Hlince, Czechoslovakia.

      • I have edited the last name for this child from Blecha (as Art Lang had it) to Blechova, the proper spelling for a girl child born in Bohemia or the Czech Republic.

      • Art had the birth location as "Hlinec, Kralovice Plzen, Bohemia, Czechoslovakia" which is correct, but I have edited it to the correct location as per the original birth records.
