Are you a possible millionaire? / Ze by jste byl milionar?

2525281_fd5fb0c3The Czech Republic has 92,000 real estate properties which have no owner. If no one claims them soon, they will become the property of the state.

About 150,000 Czech names are associated with these properties but their fates are unknown. The 31,000 of them were born before the year 1910 which means they have/had no birth numbers (rodne cislo) and therefore  they are harder to find. Also, it is believed that many of these vanished individuals died in the concentration camps during World War II.

If you are feeling lucky, try to type your last name to this box (located in the lower part of the text) and see if it appears on the list of these missing owners. Perhaps your long lost uncle left you something….

I tried to put in my last name and no such luck :(.

CZ: Vite, ze v Cechach se nachazi 92 000 nemovitosti, ktere nemaji zadneho majitele? Jestlize se k nim nikdo neprihlasi, brzy propadnou statu. Zkontrolujte si, jestli nahodou nejste jednim z dedicu zde (kliknete zde).

    Those properties belong to somebody – especially, when they were murdered in concentration camp. Why don’t you do the right thing and spend the time and money to find next-to-kins and return these properties to their families – instead of selling them off and profiting from it….

    Mr. Krall was my Step-Father. He died in 1990 leaving everything to my Mother. She died in 2003 leaving everything to me. There are no other heirs.

    My last name (Mach) appeared in over 30 files. I believe my family was from Lipa and came to Texas in the early 1900’s.

    Milane, i have no idea what are you talking about. That is exactly what am I doing here – trying to help to find their owners.

    Tani, I think that’s what Milan meant. Not You-Tanja, but You-the government of the Czech Rep… You’d think that they already looked for next of kin.

    How about the family name Havlovic or Lavicky or Cech
