Wisoka or Vysoka, Bohemia

Wisoka or Vysoka, Bohemia

My GG father immigrated from Bohemia in 1877. Documentation lists his home town as Wisoka, which I cannot find. I'm wondering if he could have lived in Vysoka. Family name is KOhn, his mother was Hahn.
Any help would be appreciated.

Don, there is a Vysoka north of Prague in central Bohemia, Catholic parish is Melnik. The church records are not yet digitized for the years you need to look at.
Sorry, Jean

Hello, for any search is crucial to determine the place in Bohemia. Please, can you describe in detail, from where you have the name of the (Wrooka K Prag or Wisoka, alternatively Vysoka) place? It is a written transcript or a picture of a document? Can you please give a picture here, if you have one available? Regards

I found the passport record for Simon Kohn via a search on Ancestry. I have not been successful in copying it to this message facility.
The passport asks for place of birth. The response is "Wisoka K Prag Austria Bohemia".

If you give us the exact date, ship name, page number, I can post a copy of the image here. We just need enough info to get to the record in Ancestry easily.
