I'm trying to do a search on my great grandmother who immigrated from Europe in 1880 and settled in the United States.
Her name was Josephine SLADOVNIK and, according to our records, was born near Pilsen, Bohemia in 1855/1856. Her last name was sometimes spelled SLOVIDNEK or SLODOVNIKOVA. Her father's name was John and her mother's name was Katharine KUNES.
In November 1880, she married a fellow Czech immigrant, John HELEBRANT, in Omaha, Nebraska and settled on a farm near Ravenna, Nebraska. She had four children with John who passed away in 1887. In 1889, she married James KOSTAL with whom she had another four children, one of whom was my grandfather.
Josephine passed away in 1923.
Any information on her family in Europe would be greatly appreciated.
