I am having no luck finding any ships' manifests of my Czech ancestors even with their year of entry into the US. I was told that there were many ports of entry, even Texas, other than New York, where the Czech families could have entered.

I have checked all databases from New York with no luck. Do you know where your Nebraska, preferably Omaha, NE Czech relatives entered the US?

Thanks in advance for any information you can provide.

I located part of my family...different surnames...Prokesch(Prokesh) on the Baltimore Port Passenger list....and the Kutina Family on the New York Passenger.list.....both families came from Bohemia. So try Baltimore.. Wenzel Nowotny(Novotny)...and family...came on Galliott Concordia the 25th of Nove 1854....listed in the Czech Passenger Lists Volume I by Leo Baca.....you need to psot the given name with the surname in order to locate the correct family.

I had a lot of trouble locating my relatives port of entry also. My family came to Plattsmouth Nebraska in 1906 through Galveston, Texas. I thought one funny thing about this port of entry is that they used and spelled correctly all of my family's names, 1st and last correctly in Czech. Good luck. Rebecca

Oh my goodness, I don't know what their given names are in Czech. Maybe that is why I can't find any of them.

Do you know how to get information from the Baca books?

Thanks.

I did my research through Ancestory.com but I had overlooked my family several times because I didn't recognize the Czech spelling (Ludmilla for Lilly etc and Ruzicka for Roucka). Good luck Rebecca

Baltimore, Boston, Philapelphia, Galveston or Canada.
If your ancestors were naturalized citizen than the petition would have some information. Take a look in the following websites.

Thanks so much for this information. I have tried both Castle Garden and Ellis Island with no success. I will try the other site you listed.

Do you know how I can obtain a copy of the Petition for Naturalization? Also my great grandmother and my grandfather and his siblings were all naturalized when their father was naturalized so he would be the only one who had a petition.

Thanks again,
Kathleen

You can write to U.S. Department of Homeland KSecurity, 2nd Floor, FOIA Unit, 111 Mass Avenue,NW, Washington, DC20529 requesting the naturalization certificate and all the preparation leading to it. I did it for my fathers side of the family and received it but could not read it. They recommended I go to the court house where they registered.
I hope this will help you.

Thanks again, Joe. Is there a fee for the service? Do I need more information as I have only sketchy dates for some of my relatives?

Surnames: Nowotny, Pospisil, Reznieck, Rezebek,
I am a Nowotny and a decendnt of Wenzel Wm Nowotny from Praha Cz. He and his wife Elizabeth and 4 year old son Wenzel Wm J Nowotny sailed from Bremen on the Ship Admiral and landed in New Orleans on Nov 28, 1854. They then went north to St. Louis and started a family. My GG Grandfather was a Locksmith and a machineist in St. Louis.

Actually his name was Vaclav but he went by Wenzel and later by William only.
