My grandmother, a Czech whose father--my great-grandfather--was Alois Swoboda. Alois was well known as a physical culturist and had a large following at the turn of the century. I am sure that, despite the spelling, the families had the same root. Please send any information you have and I will send anything I have in return. However, perhaps you have some way to research the matter and see if the family name is the same. I'll be waiting for a response.
