Do you have a list of surnames of the people who left this area in the 1880's? and for what reason was the emigration?
Were these people called Germans? Austrians? Is this area anywhere near Bamberg, Germany? or the Black Forest?
I am just beginning the research on my German side.
Also how do I begin to search the ships for immigration to USA?
Thank you for your help and input.

Hi Mary, there are two Hirschau I know in Germany and in Bohemia there.
1/ Hirschau in Germany - Bavaria is near Bamberg.
2/ Hirschau in Bohemia is in southwest of Czech Republic in Plzen region and in Domazlice district.
I can help you with this one in Bohemia.
All the best. Tony.

Surnames: Dostalek or Dostalkova
Upon reading your reply ref the original post, maybe you can give me a hand. My great grandfather was born Johann Josef Dostalek on 26 Apr 1891 in Dlouhonovice, East Bohemia, Czech Republic. There might be a difference in the spelling of the last name as I'm finding family pictures with names of family and the last name on some is Dostalkova. He supposedly immigrated to the US from the port in Bremen in 1907. Any help in confirming the last name and how to find the info in Czech Republic would be appreciated. I do know that my great grandfather did have a brother that lived in the town all his life. His name was Frank Dostalek or Dostalkova and he had a son he named Frank Jr. Also had 2 daughters, one possibly named Rodina. Also a sister or niece with the name of Maria. All are in the same location as my GGpa. Thanks for any help.

Dlouhonovice is big village near Zamberk town in northeast of Bohemia. It is to distant of my residence. The parish registers are deponyed in Archives in Zamrsk town.
Try to ask in board "Czech Republic - Vychodocesky kraj".
