Czech and Slovak Memorial Day Fun
- Go to:
You will learn
Name Distribution in the United Kingdom (UK)
Name Distribution in America (US)
Selected newspaper Headlines for your surname
Occupations in 1880
Place of Origin of others with your name
Ports of Departure of other with your name
The life expectancy charts based on US Census records will give you
average of how much longer you have to go based on your surname.
This works best with Slovaks, Czechs, and Carpatho-Rusyns with rare
surnames. Names like Stevens or Smith will include too many non-
relatives. A Slovak Carpatho-Rusyn name like Kopchak will actually
be an indicator of time left.
The name distribution in America will pinpoint where your ancestors
settled after arriving in America based on the 1920 Census.
The immigration year covers the 1850's to the early 1890's so this
will not be as useful to Slovaks as most came to America after this
period in American history.
