Of course, there was no country called Czechoslovakia until
What was source of your information, naturalization papers or a U.S.
Census enumeration ?
Jan can be either a Slovak, Czech, or Polish first name.
A Jan Misura arrived from Galicia in 1902 from Antwerp, Belgium
port of exit in Europe.
Age 16, so born in 1888 ?
From Glimk which is probably some place located in SE Poland
or Ukraine (qualifies as Austrian-Poland or Polish Galicia)
Did you locate another Jan Misura from Galicia in the EIR lists ?
Are you sure your GF arrived NYC port of entry, and not Baltimore,
Philadelphia, or even Galveston, TX which many Czechs used ?
