Don't know your surnames.
Krepcik can be a Slovak surname.
Don't know from where in Slovakia.
Unless you know surname village/town of origin in Slovakia
very hard to say where it comes from.
Krepcik can be a surname from former Czech-Bohemia as well.
Velim is a small agricultural community located 70 km (28 miles) of
Praha and 5 miles WNW of large town of Kolín.
Velim was variously known as Vela, Velyne^, Velyna, Welim, Bajervek,
and Siegfeld (G) over hundreds of years of its history.
A battle was fought near it between the Austrian and Prussian forces
Czech-Bohemia (including Moravia 1849-1918) was a kingdom
(10th century-1918) and part of the Austro-Hungarian Monarchy
It was an Austrian Kröneland (province)
Both German and Czech languages were used.
Mähren => Maehren => Marin => Moravia.
Mähren was an Austrian Crownland located East of Böhmen (Bohemia).
Its capital was Brünn (Brno).
Mähren had been a separate crownland until 1849 when it became a part
of Böhmen (Bohemia) together with Österreichisch-Schleisen
The Austrian Habsburgs, accustomed to being imperial, assumed the
title of Emperor of Austria in 1804. Later, the "dual-monarchy" was
established, with the Habsburgs as Emperors of Austria and Kings of
Hungary, the combined realm being known as "Austria-Hungary".
Madl is a German surname.

Following the end of WW II (1945) the Czechs expelled the 3 million
Germans in Czechoslovakia (some with ethnic surnames back for 100s of
years) back to Germany and renamed all the German named towns back to
Checked the Ellis Island Records Web site for surname Krepcik.
Only 7 surnames were listed ; 6 were from Siegfeld Austria.
The above suggests it was actually located in Czech- Bohemia which
was an Austrian province before WW I.
1 surname was listed as from Hamburg, Germany but Hamburg was port of
exit for all the surnames and perhaps was just temporary Last
Residence in Europe.
The Krepcik data from EIR didn't get posted in my prior reply either.
Arrived 4 August 1899 from Hamburg, Germany.
Family Krepcik from Siegfield Austria.

- Hi John, I'm a novice researcher yet I have ran across
this web site and somewhere in it has a cross index
where you can check your surname to try to find its
nationality. Check out //feefhs.org I hope this helps
you. It's in Engish. You might check out hungarian
names, yes its a puzzle thats for sure. There are
people who will help,this is a large site so it might
take a while. I always find myself getting lost and
frustrated, just keep plunking away at it you'll find
it. sincerely Taryn
