I am trying to find information for maternal great grandparents. I have hit a wall on both families as I have immigration dates (from census data) but am unable to located where they arrived or where they originally came from.
For the family of Joseph Vosmik and wife Mary, son Joseph and daughters Annie and Rose, I know that they arrived in 1891 from Bohemia (some records say Austrian Bohemia)and settled in Niles, IL but I cannot find out how they got here and where exactly they came from..
Same issue for John Jozwiak. I know that he arrived in 1893 from German Poland and settled in Chicago but no information where he arrived, how he got here or where he came from.
Can anyone suggest how I move another generation back into the past? Thanks!
