      Hi, Barb,
      I wish I could be of help, but I'm having the same problem.
      Although I've found my grandfather at Ellis Island in 1903,
      I'm not finding my grandmother and her kids, [who I know arrived
      that same year]. I have good reason to believe that grandfather
      Soukup worked in the Pa. coal mines and I'm thinking the family
      followed him, perhaps arriving in Philidelphia or Baltimore.
      The family was also supposed to be from the area around Pilsen.
      I'll post my findings when, [by some miracle], I find them.
      Good luck to us both!
