        Good Evening, Sally,
        I did a Google search for: "Bursik, Tx", and there were too many hits to
        mention here. It seems to have been, or become, a very common Czech
        surname. Perhaps if you could give his given name , town or county in
        Texas, and what period of time he would have been in Texas someone may be
        able to find one of the entries which fit?

        Always glad to welcome another Czech aboard and good luck with your search.

        George

        Hi,

        I'm from an American born Czech mother, born and raised in Oregon. My father
        is from Texas. I feel inside out here. <grin>

        Anyway, I'm kind of more interested in culture and traditions. If I link up
        with family that would be ok too. My Czech forebears are Bursik, my mother's
        Father's name, and Slaby, her mother's name. I'm 59 years old and counting
        now, and my grandkids are interested in their heritage. We know where to
        find the barn my grandfather built, still standing.

        We know that my grandmother admired the Statue of Liberty from the ship she
        arrived on. She was sent to the US by aunts and uncles at about age 12, with
        her younger sisters, and worked for the families here to defray the costs of
        the tickets. When she arrived on American soil she went to Nebraska to be
        with those families, sponsors, I suppose. One of the families was named
        Kluna.

        My grandfather's arrival predated the Statue. He was with his parents and
        brother. They first settled in Pennsylvania and worked in mines there. I
        don't know if they did that in Czechoslovakia or not. But they were not
        happy in Pennsylvania so they moved on to Nebraska to farm. My grandfather
        worked as a chef in a hotel there. He met my grandmother and they married
        and began the family. Then all the Bursiks got money enough to buy a farm in
        Melrose, Oregon. Moved the family out to Oregon by train.

        Sally
