Family History Beginners Board / Are Czech last names gender specific?
« on: Wednesday 03 April 19 21:37 BST (UK)  »
Can someone confirm whether Czech family last names are gender specific?  I have a fairly large group in my family tree and it appears the females will have a version of the last name and the men a slightly sorter version of the same name.   Date ranges are 1600-1700 and even 1800s.

For example: 
Střihavková  (female)
Střihavka (male)


Dubský (male)
Dubská (female)

These are only a couple examples, but there are several, also appears the maiden name is often left out of records, was that common? 

Armed Forces / Help to identify military uniform

Hello, I am trying to identify the country and approximate time frame for this uniform.  It looks similar to an Austrian uniform, but I can't be sure.  Some of the metals look Austrian as well.   If the specific conflict is apparent that would be great to know as well.
