Am looking for any information on the ancestry of my grandparents Peter Bleskan and Helen Kurcinka(?). Immigrated in the early 1900's from Dlha, Cz. Sl. and settled in Bennett, Wisconsin. They had four children, Al, Lillian, Helen and George bleskan. Peter died somewhere around 1926 and Helen worked as a maid for her remaining years. I know more about Peter than Helen's ancestry. I cannot seem to find the Ellis Island's records for either of them. I believe the last names may be spelled differently. Or the stories we pass on are incorrect as to when they came to America and why. Some of the first names of siblings of Peter are Andrej, Pauline, Mary, Ann, Michael Bleskan. for Helen she had half sisters and brothers when her mother remarried. They are Tony, Christina, Anna, Johanna and Pauline. Helen and her siblings may have different last names, possible Horvath. Helen parents were Anna Barkor and Joseph Kurcinka. Anna was married before and possibly widowed or abandoned. The story is my grandmother Helen left Europe at the age of 17 to get away from her stepfather. Any information will be helpful./ Michele Bleskan
