Thanks for the info on Norman Krischke's book on Holman Valley. Didn't
even know where Holman, Fayette Co, Texas was. For those on the list who
are in search of driving there, Holman, Texas is about 8 miles North of
Weimar (off I-10) on FM-155. (Approximately 3 mi. east of Ammansville).
Cemeteries within a couple of miles include: St. Wenceslaus, Bargas,
Holman, Brandt, Bittner & Shaw. (Specific note to TexasCzechs list: if
anyone is planning to make a run to Holman for the book, let us know if
you're willing to take orders from the rest of us.)

Hello Wendy & Greg
I have put you research on hold. I have questions. One is do you
have the book " A Visit To The Holman Valley " ? If not you need to
have it. A good deal of your family lived there. If you would
acquire a copy this would take your research to a new level. I don't
want to take any of the excitement of finding a treasure chest of
information from you. This should be your find. I bought my copy
about two years ago. The author is Norman C. Krischke 516 North
Street Schulenburg, Texas 78956. I picked my copy up at the Holman
Stake House. It's not hard to find it is the only building in town.
And if you go there you will never find a better steak. They are to
die for. The book contains pictures of the Vacek general store. I
will run this note on the Reply To All because of the inquiries of
people from this area. A few of the surnames are as follows. HOLMAN,
MAZOCH, HORAK, NEISER, HAJOVSKY, ADAMCIK, CERNOSEK, VACEK,
HLUCHANEK, KANA, RISER, SLACK, HEFNER, BRANT, SELZER,
GENZER,VORNSAND, BITTNER, SANDER, BREITHAUPT, KRISTOF, and many
