I am looking for information on my great-grandfather Louis
(Alois?) Novotny. He was the son of Josef Novotny and born in Bohemia 23 Dec 1858. He married Mary Pikal daughter of Wencil and Marie Pikal. Mary was born somewhere in Czech.
18 Mar 1862. I do not know when and where Louis and Mary were married or when they emigrated, but they ended up in St Paul by way of New Prague Minnesota (US) along with a lot of other Novotnys but very few Pikals. Any help would be appreciated and I will share what I have and do what I can concerning researching these or other Czech. surnames in Minnesota. Thank you in advance.
