I am researching the family of Rose/Rosalia Mrkvica, who immigrated to the U.S. about 1893 at age 8. I don't her parents' names yet.
Census records where she lived in Berwyn,Cook County, Illinois, say she came from Czechslovakia/Bohemia/Austria and spoke Czech.
She married Frank Joseph(Franz Josef?)Porod/Parod when she was about 25. She died in 1957. He died in Nov. 1966. They are buried in Queen of Heaven Cemetery in Hillside, Illinois.
Is any of this familiar?
