Re: [SLOVAK-ROOTS] Re: LOUCKA and BECKA
- Hi Sherri,
Do you have proof of any of these dates you cite? From ship manifests,
naturalization records, census records, vital records? You can't rely on
something from the Wall of Honor at Ellis Island as a place of origin.
You need to search the records listed above, which will give you most,
if not all, of the facts you are seeking on children etc.
Basically you start with the 1920 census for the state your family
settled in (usually through a soundex at first, then to the full
census), and at the same time get vital records, starting with death
certificates for them.
You can read the information on my Helpful Hints site to help you get
started. Hope this helps you.
