Anton Zid Arrive Ellis Island from Czechoslovakia, date unknown at this time. I have heard that he shortened his name upon arrival to Zid. I have a picture of John Velek and Anton Zid in front of the Chicago Wire Chair Co, dated 1906. I also have a family portrait of Veronica, Elizabeth, Mary, John, Anton and Margaret. At this time I do not know who the Velek family is. My grandfather was Frank Zid, who married Marie Kellner in 1917. They lived on Lombard Avenue in Berwyn, Illinios. My father was Pete Zid, who had siblings Dorthy, Frank and Rosemarie. I wish I could offer more information.
