1. Your birth certificate, showing your mother's maiden name.
2. Your mother's birth/baptismal certificate, showing her parents' names.
3. Any immigration record that might show location.
4. Any letters from people in CR (or Czechoslovakia or Bohemia or Moravia) that indicate a relationship with Aloisia.
