About us

This website is part of the project, A Genealogist's Guide to the Archives of the Czech Republic, prepared by MyCzechRoots. Our goal is to provide a systematic description of the wide array of historical records available to individuals conducting genealogy & family history research in the Czech Republic (i.e. Bohemia, Moravia, and Silesia). We're primarily interested in documents that were collected throughout the Czech lands and that are generally available for use by the public. Since most of these records are held in state-run archives, we provide search tools and tips to help users navigate these resources, both online and in person.

As time permits, we'll be adding descriptions of additional types of documents. You can follow our progress on the Recent Additions & Updates. page. We also plan to eventually publish the website in Czech and German language versions. If you have any comments, questions, or suggestions, please contact us.

We thank the archives of the Czech Republic and the Ministry of the Interior for their support and for granting us permission to use examples of archival documents for our project.
