Are you interested in the links between family lines from Stachy region in Sumava mountains, Czech Republic? In the scheme there are drawn links of some tens of family lines (houses) from this region.

The founder of the family line described on these pages was Jakub Kluiber 1670-CZ1736 from the homestead Krousov No. 141 (Krousov = Grosshoff, Großhof, Groszhof, Groussen, Krausow) nearby the village Nicov and all Kluibers in Czech Republic are his descendants or wives of his descendants. Kluibers inhabited the homestead Krousov 141 for more than 200 years and it still exists and today the hamlet Krousov is a part of the village Stachy, district Prachatice, Czech Republic. In the beginning  of the 20th century many Kluibers left Bohemia, but there are some that could be traced like: Isidor Kluiber CZ1882-D1944, Joseph Kluiber CZ1880-USA1955 and his step-brother Rudolf Kluiber CZ1900-USA1981.

The surname Kluiber comes from an old Bavarian name for „lumberjacks“ or „quarryman“.

Entries concerning ancestors of Jakub Kluiber 1670-CZ1736 have not been found yet.
In the book Czech Glass by Frantisek Mares (České sklo - František Mareš) from 1893 there are entries mentioning southbohemian glassblowers of a similar name Klojbar (=Khloiber) that lived in the region in the beginning of the 17th century. Adam Klojbar was of protestant denomination and due to the fact that during the 17th century a tough recatolization was under way it is possible that some of Kluibers had to or decided to leave the country.
