There were three different languages used in Czech registries in the past - Czech, Latin and German. This means you'll find there at least three different names used for months. Why I used "at least"? Because there are quite many other variations. Latin and German versions are similar to English, Czech name are different. And what about names as Hornung, 9ber etc.? I have prepared a table with these names to help you orientate in these names.

I haven't posted here for quite a long time and I owe you explanation. Well - I have spent last couple of weeks on finishing a book about Czech genealogy called "Let's create your family tree" (Sestavte si rodokmen in Czech. It was published in one of the largest publishing houses in the Czech Republic and I hope it will sell well. :)
This book doesn't have English translation - I would like to add "yet" but first of all I need to find a publisher in U.S. And I hope to find one - but I'll start the search in 2013 as there are way too many projects to be finished till Christmas.
