93Re: Surname: CERNY - Bohemia, Czechoslovakia
- Jul 1, 1999Hello Rosemary,
Do you do any research at your local Family History Center? That is the
place you would need to go to order microfilms of US census and other
films to document your family.
Posting messages on boards and lists are a great help, and many times a
connection can be made, however, if at all possible everyone should
research at the FHC.
You need to start with the death certificate of that person, then go to
the 1920 US census, or that last available census for that person's life
(some counties in NY for example have a 1925 census). Then you trace
them backwards until their birth.
The Czech Republic has not allowed the LDS church to microfilm their
records, so you would have to request a search of their archives through
them. In my experience, this takes a long time, but it is worth it.
However, you must do your work in the US on the person first.
You can get many hints and explanation on my Helpful Hints website, url
Hope this helps you some....
