9454RE: [S-R] Words of Encouragement for those who hit the "Brick Wall"
- Mar 11, 2004Hi Elizabeth. I know that my husband's great-great-great-grandfather's name
was Simon (or Siman) Kadlec. He was born in 1849 in Bohemia, but there is
some difficulty in finding what country they came from. He was married to
Mary and they eventually settled in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. I know that they
were buried in the Holy Cross Cemetery in Milwaukee, but that is all I know.
So, I don't have a whole lot of information to go with here. ANY help would
be greatly appreciated however! :-) Thank you in advance!

I would suggest that you try to find the Declaration of Intent, filed in the
county courthouse of residence at the time of application for citizenship.
frequently contains a great deal of useful information. Do you know what
year they came? That can have a great bearing on where the ship information
might be found. If they are on the 1920 census, the year of immigration
listed, as well as whether or not they have become citizens. Sometimes, the
Declarations of Intent are also contained in the State Archives. If you can
provide some more specific information, such as full names, ages, place of
residence, etc, I would be happy to poke around some.
