Czech archives are accustomed to mail inquiries.''' If the form does not meet your needs, you may write a letter in English.''' Thus requests for heraldry can be presented, as well as requests for personal research in the archives.
Because archivists are busy with their assigned duties, availability to process a request for research varies with each archive. '''Do not send money with the initial request. '''*When the research is completed you will be notified by the archive. *They will advise you of the research fee and request payment before sending you the report. *They will also provide instructions on how to make your payment.
The success of your genealogical research depends on the accuracy of the information you provide. Please provide any and all information that could help identify the person you are searching for. Please note that ''' your request will be rejected if you do not provide the exact place of origin. ''' Also, if your research concerns some large city such as Bratislava, it is recommended to specify in what part of the city the person being searched for was born, married or died.
