Was Emma born in "old country" or US?
Ah, NOVAK is just too common of a name so no help there.
Pisik no such so it has to be Pisek and I already wrote in previous e-mail that there are 4 Piseks in Czech Republic. We really want the ancestor to be from a small village. The obituary information is correct only if the deceased wrote it himself/herself. We do know how many errors can be found in US documents of old.
Nothing shows up in www.zanikleobce.cz
If you have not already, do post on Illinois board and Czech Republic board so the regulars that come on that board can come and give their expertise.
