do you need a Baca look up? If so, reply with names and dates.

I want to see if my great grandparents are listed in the czech passenger list coming into Baltimore around 1880. His name is John Rudolph Novak and her name is Mary Catherine Pisarcik. I do not think they traveled together. I cannot seem to find out where I can go to look at Leo Baca's books. I do know they are available for sale.

The birth year per census records for John Rudolph Novak is 1859, although the headstone for his grave says 1865. Mary Catherine Pisarchik's birthdate is 1864 per census records, but her headstone says 1871. They were married in Baltimore in January 1886 and had three children there, then moved to Richmond, Va where I find them in the city directories in 1893 and 1894. By 1900 they had moved to Dunmore, PA where I find them on the census record and had three more children born in PA.

Many Public Libraries in cities where Czechs settled have selected Volumes of these books -- Texas, Illinois Wisconsin etc. Specify which specific volumes you are interested in and contact the Reference Librarian in that city.

Good Hunting.

After looking for your John R. Novak, I do not believe he is in the Baca books. Although I do find two possibles....
1, Johann Nowak,22, arr. June 4, 1881, with family of parents Joh. & Anna, and sibs Anna, Ludmilla, Agnes, Franz, Ludwig and Friediech, sailing on board the "Baltimore". Don't think this is your guy.
2. Johann Nowak, 23, arr. Sept 23, 1880, dest. Nebraska, with parents Franz and Johanna. Don't think this is your guy either.
I do believe this Johann Novak, age 24, arr. 1880, Baltimore is yours, from the Polish Arrivals at the Port of Baltimore by Jeanne Davis-White.
Also think that the John Noak on the 1880 census in Baltimore is yours, He is a shoe maker. Entered twice, first one on June 8 and second on June 10. He is with Vincent Forest and Joseph Benesch both times.
I didn't find anything for Mary in the Baca books.
Do you have a death certificate or obituary for John that would indicate an accurate place of birth?

It is amazing what you have unearthed and I am extremely grateful. I would have at first thought that the first Johann might be the one...since the names are all family names. However, my mother contends that he (John Rudolph Novak) was an only child. He did bring his parents over at some point and their names were John and Helen. I do not have a death certificate or obit that would shed some light on an accurate place of birth. All I have at this point is the 1886 marriage certificate from St. Wencheslaus Church in Baltimore, MD. I will send for the death certificates for both John Rudolph and Mary Catherine Novak from PA. Not sure why I did not do that so far.
You have been a great help and seem like an angel to provide this information. Thanks so much.
