Bohemian ancestors arriving in Canada

Bohemian ancestors arriving in Canada

Surnames: Karl
Any suggestions on finding the passenger lists for ancestors from Bohemia who may have entered through Canada? I am seeking Adalbert Karl, wife Katharina and four children. They departed from Bremen Germany in 1859. They appear in the 1860 census in Allegany, New York.

I have searched every U.S. source I could find including Leo Baca's book "Czech Immigration Passenger Lists", the "Germans to America" series, and every port on Ancestry.com but can't find them. I am guessing they came through Canada

Any suggestions would be welcome!

I am searching the family of Anna barbara Pietsch and her Husband Anton herrgesell ancestors who may have stayed behind when Anton and Franziska and 4 girls came to USA via bremen in 1866.
Our village was Engelsberg in Austria/ Bohemia. They sailed on ship called Hansa.
In Engelsberg Anton had a flouring mill-stone mill till 1864.
Good luck on your search. I think our people came thru NY Castle garden port.

Any relation to your SEBEK? Family went to family or close to the family.

Sebek, Veronika Clevland, Oh. 54 1859 1913
Sebek, Marie Clevland, Oh. 23 1890 1913

One would think the church the ancestors attended and where the children were baptized would have a place of birth of the parents.

Surnames: Hrebec and Bokor (Hrbek and Bokr)
I am searching for any info on my Bohemian Great grandparents
Matej Hrebec (Hrbek) came from Prestice/Dolni Nesdice (NOZ). We believe he left his homeland about 1885-1886 arriving in New York Harbor and settled in St. Louis, Missouri.
His wife is Anna Bokr - Birthplace was Prestice, S. Kasov, Bohemia. Her birth date was written as 6/30/1860 instead of 6/30/1861. Hamburg Passenger Records show that Anna Herebek departed 14 Sept 1887 (booked in steerage) from her place of residence - Skasow, Bohemia and arrived in New York with her son, Josef, on 29 Sept 1887 at the age of 26 years aboard the steamboat, Polynesia.
Can you verify any of the above information since some of it states Matj and Anna arrived together and others that he came first and she followed later with their son, Josef.

thank you in advance!!
