My great-grandfather came to America from Bohemia, Czecholslovakia at some point in his life. His name was Frank Tauer Sr., born in Domazlice, 03/13/1873. We don't know if he came over as a child or an adult. He never spoke of his past, it is thought he changed his name (or as he entered America, officials changed it?). He raised his family in Valley Co., NE, USA. Wife, Josie (MACH), children Frank Jr, Fannie, and Minnie Bower (my grandmother.) I am wondering if he had siblings and are there other relatives still alive in the Czech Republic? Please email chrisgunwall@hotmail.com.

Dear Christine,

I found your message very interesting. My Tauer family comes from Vollmau and Meigelshof both of which are near Domalice. I have been in contact with some gentlemen from Prague who have the Tauer's back to 1635. I'm trying to take the family back to intersect with their research. Records for that area are located in the Pilsen (Pilzen) Archive. Some of the contents for that archive are listed in the index for the LDS. You may be able to contact them and find out your answers in that way. If you would like to communicate, please send me an email. I'd love to hear from you. Jean Tauer

I am also interested in finding my roots. My grandfather was Frank Tauer born in Kouta N Domazlice Czechoslovakia on March 13, 1873 and died June 26, 1951 in Ord, Nebraska. He married Josie Mach born Feb. 10, 1881 in Wahoo, Nebraska. They married in 1899. They lived in Nebraska there whole life. Josie died March 24, 1963 in Ord Nebraska. He came to the U.S. around 1892. He didnot talk about his life in the Czech Republic. They had a son Frank who died in Wyoming in the 50's, a daughter Fannie Harris who died in 1996 in Lander, Wyoming and another dauhter Minnie Bower (my mother) who died in 1975. Any information would be appreciated.

The village Frank was born in is probably Kout na Šumavě. Parrish registers are here http://actapublica.eu/matriky/plzen/?akce=hledat&hl_sign...

I browsed through one book and the Tauer family lived there. There´s one Franz (=Frank), but he was born 8.6.1873. http://actapublica.eu/matriky/plzen/prohlizec/3730/?strana=2...
