Surnames: Potmersil
I have found my Great grandparents in Nebraska with their son and his family in 1910 census and they show 1902 as immagraition date. I have checked ancestry (all records there, I have checked Elisisland and Steves site. Checked all the Czech books on immagration and have had no luck finding them. It was Valcav and Anna Potmesil and their youngest childern Mary, Joseph, Ben. Found all the others any help and/or ideas to try next would be appreciated

Do you know their place of birth?
Mary, Joseph and Ben are their English first names so they would not be coming to America as such unless this would be their return from a visit.
You might want to look into an intent & petition, as most likely someone was naturalized.

Names were Vaclav (James) Potmesil born in Gluckzu #11 Austria Hungrey, and Anna (Kaselova) Potmesil and I have uses Czeck names for the children also. In Usa they used both from time to time. I also looked into intent and petitions and there were none.

found these 2 arriving NY EI
Potmesil, Bozena Pnov 25 1877 1902
Potmesil, Vaclav Pnov 17 1885 1902
I'm sure you found them.
Would there be a reason for them to go to Canada and then come down to USA?

Surnames: Potmesil
This would have been two of the children that came. I was told that we had family in Canada but found no solid connection (Potmesil or Kasal). The ones I am looking for is Vaclav (1851-1933) and Anna (Kasalova) Potmesil (1875-1968) and Josef 1890-1957, Bohumil 1892-1939) and Marie Anna (1894-1966) there were Alois, Bozena, Stefen, Miena, Vaclav and Aloisie and they all came over at different times and have found all of them. Just can't find Parents Vaclov and Anna and the three youngest children. THanks for helping.

You're welcome.
Vaclav and Anna could have come before NY EI processing center opened. You looked in www.castlegarden.org
By any chance Anna, Josef, Bohumil or Marie were naturalized citizen? Their intent & petition would have a date, ship name, port of departure etc.

Just because the census says 1902 does not mean that the ancestor might not have made an error when they arrived.
Any other census they show up?
You have Alois's and Stefan's intent & petition?
