Re: Pavlovsky & Dvorak surnames
I have been researching my family name Pavlacky but pronounced Pov-lots-kee.In my searching I have seen our name with different spellings.I was told by the family in Slovakia that my eldest ancestor Jan Pavlacky b.1808 in Bojkovice, CR had brothers andsons who went to Moravia CZ. abt. 1830.
Our family came to America abt. 1885 and settled in Nebraska & South Dakota.I would say the name Anna Peterka would be Peterky since the women either had "a" dropping the "y" or just adding ova after the name like Ulrich would be Ulrichova, or Pavlacky would be Pavlacka.
If you see anything above that would connect with your family, I would be more than willing to discuss any knowledge that I have.Tks, Nancy
