- Lizzy,Unless you provide an Internet address to view the birth record page or up load it to Slovak-Roots we cannot view it. The address may be the easiest. Open the page, copy the address up on the bar and paste into a message to S-R.Have you done a search using Familysearch.com?I ran your surnames; Prihoda, Oficky and Mrakota through a Slovak search engine. In the 1995 Slovak Census no surname with those spelling existed. I did find that mrakota is Slovak for faint.You mentioned Bohemia, which is part of the Czech Republic. If you believe your roots are Bohemian you might be better served with a Czech genealogy group. There is http://www.cgsi.org/. Of course we will continue to help you in the best of our ability here a Slovak Roots. Bohemia is the region that Prague is located in. The region of Moravia is between it and Slovakia.
WOW, it's been 2 years since I have been able to follow up! The info given to me lead me to the birth record of Theresa Prihoda, now I need translation!
My Mother past a year ago, so that source of info is now gone, yet she didn't have much info since she grew up in Illinois in a Bohemian Orphanage.
Can someone help translate this birth record... the 3rd birth on this page for Marie Prihoda? I'm looking for the fathers info and mothers and what is written in those sections. I am trying to get back farther in my ancestry tree but am stuck. I would LOVE the mothers maiden name if there... I'm also trying to find a "location" to search as well for both Josef and the mother of Marie. I have Marie Prihodas death cert and it states the mothers name is Marie as well, and unknown maiden name. (you know these death certs can be wrong since it all depends on who filled them out)...
From family records, I have
Marie Prihodas mother to be
Therezia (SP?) Prihoda
I have Therezia's Parents to probably be Joseph Oficky and Marie Mrakota.
I am wondering if any of there names are in that birth record.
Many of my relatives are buried in Chicago Bohemian National Cemetary and Adelbert Cemetary.

- I posted the link to the DigiArchiv in my last post, i deleted the post you responded to but it didn't delete it, sorry... My link is in my last post. As for where my family is from, I have already gotten all the history in the 1900s, now am dealing with the 1800s and prior in Czech Republic currently. The group you sent me to is a paid group, and i am not in any way able to do that now. I already use the digiarchives of SRA. Very good. and belong to ancestry and use the family search.Too bad I can't read the language and the old font handwriting has me baffled. I have already punched in every word I could spell in translate. I am stuck with names in a very SMALL section of the birth record. I can't tell if they are names or locations.I'll figure it out some day. I always had good info with your news letters and reading some posts, The head photo states CZECH and SLOVAC roots, hence my misunderstanding this is the wrong place to be. Honestlly, i have NO IDEA where the final location will be, I need to get back a few more generations outside of the USA to determine "where" i belong.sincerely,L
- Here you go:
For the father:
Josef Prihoda, tailor from Kovarov, the son of Matej Prihoda, a cabinetmaker from the same place, and mother Josefa Fort from Zahradka
For the mother:
Teresia, daughter of Josef Opicka, a cotter from Technice, and mother Maria Mrakot from Zaluzany

Subject: Re: [S-R] Re: PRIHODA help Translate the Birth Cert I found!! YEAH
I tried to delete this double post, but obviously it didn't work. I also attached a photo of the birth record via the attach photo, but it stripped it. So, i reposted my post with all the info in it INCLUDING the link of the birth record:-) , i would like to delete this one somehow, I am going back to 1800 and have enormous amount of USA history, I am now going directly to https://digi.ceskearchivy.cz/DA?unset_f=1&x=&y=&z=&r=0&lang=en&menu=3&id=4916&page=18&search=&sst=0&dates=&searchtype=&searcharch=&allwords=
Honestly, till i get back in history before this file, there is NO TELLING where the roots will lead!
Thank you for the suggestion of moving to the other forum. I will move per your request. Thank you for your time.
