My name is Petr Zelinka, my gran, gran father was born in Dolní Loučky. One of his brothers was Ignatz (*29.10.1813). Maybe father of Ignatz *1847).

What do you think?

Petr-

I don't know whether the two Ignatz's were related. Zelinka is a common name. All I know about the Ignatz Zelinka, born in 1847, is contained in the obituary from the Neue Freie Presse. It doesn't say where he was born. Was your Ignatz, born in 1813, Jewish?

Dear Ann,

I probably conacted two independent information from internet. There is another Ignatz Zelinka from village Dolní Loučky - which is your Ignatz probably not.
My Ignatz Zelinka is for sure not Jewish (is Catholic). It is typical Czech name. I have never heard about any Jewish named Zelinka in Czech Republic. But if your Ignatz is Jewish - it is very interresting information for me. Petr
