A matrix is Bohemian if its elements are taken from a finite set of integers. We enumerate all possible determinants of Bohemian upper Hessenberg matrices with subdiagonal fixed to one, and consider the special case of families of matrices with only zeros on the main diagonal, whose determinants proved to be related to a generalization of Fibonacci numbers. Several conjectures recently stated by Corless and Thornton follow from our results.
