Looking for my family

Postby JoePowers » 02-Mar-08 17:05

My mother is Bonnie Poshek (Pesek also Pasek).

I found a Rodny List of her great uncle (James Posek). His parents were James Poshek and Amra Batchky. Their son John and his wife Josephine Paulovich moved to the United States in 1889 with their son James (born 10 Jan 1887 in Stitoy Contry, Rokjeany) and his brother Joseph (born Apr 1889 in Mo, USA).

Josephine's parents where James Paulovich and Mary Blacksmith. They also had son Joe and another daughter named Mary or Victoria.

In 1945 my great uncle Joe Poshek was in Pilsen, Stitov Conty, Czech and found that the family still owned a pub there or in Prague.

I'm looking for the any existing relatives still in the area or anyone who knows of the family. I'm very interested in doing a family tree and I can't find anything about them.

It is probably Štítov, Plzeň county (county="okres")

I would put my money on Pašek (sounds most like the English transcription Posh - ek)

I would certainly not. My granny has mistake in her own surname in rodný list (rodný list = birth-certificate). :?
