Subject: Prague tips?
Though I am fairly experienced in genealogical
research, I am venturing into new territory here. In
short, I am researching a Czech artist known as Toyen,
born Marie Cerminova (sorry about lack of diacriticals
but they work so badly on e-mail), in Prague in
September 1902. There is a mysterious lack of data on
her prior to about 1923.
I am currently in Prague and during the course of
research at the main literary archive (PNP), I
discovered information about Toyen inheriting some
property in Smichov from her mother and sister, and
also a file relating to her partner!s inheritance in a
Does anyone have any tips or suggestions about
how/where one locates Prague birth records, or real
estate records that would relate to the Smichov
property, or anything else that might be pertinent to
researching the early life of this artist? I know some
Czech and am here for the remainder of the summer
taking a language class. Admittedly, many archives do
close for the summer, but I will be returning at some
point for further research on this artist (who is not
related to me).
Thanks in advance,
