This blog is for all the people whose surname is Katzer. I hope that thanks to the web site they will become interested in their roots which geographically originate from the place called Grulich in The Moravian Region and villages surrounding the area. I believe that visiting this web site will encourage you to learn more about movement of Jan Huß, religious wars connected with it and taking place in the middle of the 15th century and about the history of the Bohemian Brothers Church. All these historical facts are entwined with the genesis of the surname Katzer. Nicolas Katzer, the court astronomer of Henry VIII is the oldest certified person by the name of Katzer we know.
