Welcome to Our Family Tree
This website was created to enable the various members of our family to communicate with each other, exchange information and collaborate. It is the result of many years of work, gathering information in archives and interviews with many relatives. The first to collect, write and graphically display a lot of information about our families was Josef Prause (* 1914). He did this in the 1970s. After his death, we living the data collected by him took over, thanks to several individuals significantly expanded and transferred to its current form.
Today's world is becoming increasingly soulless, materialized and globalized. Words like "tradition", "homeland" or "family" become for many just empty sounds, devoid of the deeper emotional content that our ancestors put into them. If we fail to save them, they will be lost forever with all the wealth of meanings and experiences that future generations will lose. One must know where he or she comes from, because no one can be from anywhere.
The site allows all visitors to view information about people and their families, but only those who are not living. Data on living persons are only available to verified family members who must be registered (currently we have a total of 68 registered members). If one of the visitors, in his opinion, belongs to a branch of our family and would like to gain full access to his family's data, let him ask for registration without hesitation. See the FAQ for instructions.
We will welcome every relative with such interest and in return we will expect him to contribute with his knowledge to the addition and enrichment of the family tree. Every new personal or family documentary and photographs, however historical, are appreciated.
The Our Family website contains information on several branches: Prause, Špunda, Martinek, Smička, Nevrlý, Bernát and Dočkal. The families are linked by the marriages of different people at different times. Therefore, they are shown here as one broadly branched family tree. Geographically, the families have been mainly concentrated in the past in two areas of Bohemia and Moravia, namely the foothills of the Eagle Mountains (Náchod and Kladsko) and Haná (Lutín and Olomouc). Later, towards the present, families spread out into the world.
There are many different ways to navigate a family tree, for example you can use it to start with:
