Hi, I was wondering if any of you have been lucky with finding info on Houdek such as the roots of the last name/what it means. I have been searching for a while now and it's been fruitless. I'm very curious with teh origin of my last name and I'm looking for help. I am the daughter of Frank Houdek Jr and grand-daughter of Frank Houdek. I live in Ohio.

My Grandparents were Wesley Houdek and Anna Klima. His parents were John and Anna Jansa Houdek and they came over from Prague. They came over for freedom of religion and because all the young men were subjects for military Training there.

would be suprised if we were not somewhat related. My g/gfather, Wentzel wife Mary, came to USA abt 1865. My gfather, Richard M was born 1862 just outside Prague. Have no further information on Wentzel or any siblings or his parents. Do have pretty complete info as time gets closer to present.
Will be hapy to share at any time. Do not get into this source often---suggest using my E-Mail address and we can communicate faster. Bill
