The Chods of Bohemia were a proud group. Their family names are a part of that pride. The ancestors of these fine families were known as free people. They were not servants to the king like others, they owned their land and they protected it even more fiercely than if it had been owned by the king!
Some of the family names include the Bernaski, Fiala, Hrabi, Hruska, Husnik, Kellner, Martinovsky, Mikolas, Urzada, Wachal, Weselak, Neyedly, Psutka, Heindl, Robel, Soyka, Sternat, Swejda, Tochor, Yansa, Zavidowski, Hermansky families, their ancestors and descendants.
They came from the Chodsko region of Bohemia, and took their strong czech heritage with them to an area of Ukraine when they began their emmigrations. From these homelands some of the families moved to North America and other countries. They became far and wide spread and some leaving their history behind.
By connecting all the families in the Chodove family tree, we are able to connect as cousins and learn what our ancestors in common did for the world and the families they put out into this world.
Through the original families we have continued to include the married in families so we have the Knezacek, Buchburger, Nagy, Kurucz, Lomenda, famiilies, the Rattray, Sim, Watt, Noble, Buchan, and the Wereschuk, Korol, Purchagga, Krill families too.
Through this website, the story of these family ancestors and their lives will be told. It all began in the 1300's when a proclamation was signed during an agreement with the Chodsko region villages and a King......
Some of the family information can be found on FamilySearch world tree. I have worked on certain families on there, so that relatives can see it easily. I have not linked any of the documentation Roy had scanned into images yet.
