Looking for information on my Grandfather's family. They lived in Stonava my grandfather's name is Alois Fukala born on June 20, 1898 in Stonava, CZ. His father was Franz Fukala born in Stonava in 1872 or 1873 his father was Franz Fukala also. I am not sure but I believe he was born in 1844 to Bernard Fukala in Stonava, Franz the second came to America in 1903 according to the 1910 census and Alois came in 1907 at the age of 9 with his mother, brother and sister. Alois later changed his name to Louis Vogalla. I would like to find living relatives. Your help is greatly appreciated. Linnea Hyder

I am having trouble locating military records for my Moravian Kadlecek ancestors for the period 1761-1874. Is there information on rules for the required military service? I read somewhere, but unfortunately do not have the web URL, that sole heirs were often excused from military services. Is this correct?
