Ivana’s maternal grandfather was Václav Franc (the son of Martin Franc and Magdalena Bradová). Václav was born in Velké Pavlovice/Groß Pawlowitz, Břeclav, Moravia. Martin was the son of Martin Franc and Kateřina Lacina. Magdalena was the daughter of František Brada and Marie Slámová.

Ivana’s maternal grandmother was Anna Procinger/Procingrová (the daughter of Josef Pocingr/Procingr and Marie Hládková/Hládeková). Anna was born in Velké Pavlovice/Groß Pawlowitz, Břeclav, Moravia. Josef was the son of Jan Pocingr and Marie Rozinková. Ivana’s great-grandmother Marie was the daughter of Jan Hládek and Kateřina Vlasáková.

    Ivana’s mother is indeed Austrian, she says it herself in this video.

    So her kids (Ivanka and her brothers) are 1/4 Austrian because their mother is half.

    The info on geni.com is different from the one in the text. Pretty much everywhere I look it says Miloš Zelníček was her father.
