Thanks Joe… You’re right, we are thinking in terms of within the framework timeline of written history as opposed to going back to “Lucy” in Dr Leakie’s search in the African Rift Valley (although that might be a very long-range goal someday!) we have used elderly residents of the rural Czech village to solve some of the basic info needs, and if you are a member of one of the major genealogy services on-line you can get a large about of ‘certifiable’ data from records available on line.
The question we have is finite. Two families from the same small geographic area in the Czech Republic, with relatives still in that area, share an uncommon surname. We will be surprised if the DNA says we are not connected. Lack of the paper-trail records (church fire) makes pinning down the exact point of connection difficult(impossible) at this time. The DNA will tell us if we are in “the Ball Park” (within 6 or 7 generations of the contact-link) which what we THINK will happen.
