Mikolas or Mikula

I am trying to find information about my great-grandfather (John Mikolas) who came to America Nov. 1880 aboard the Nurnberg and his family before they left the old country. He traveled with his Father (Johann) and his Mother (Rosine Cernoch) and his 2 sisters. I have found a possible link between a Johann Mikolas and a Joseph Mikula(s) - brothers maybe - however I cannot confirm that the Johann Mikolas is the same person as my great-great grandfather? I am hoping someone out there can help me confirm or refute this information. Thanks very much

I am looking for the birth record of Emilie Zita born September 1905 in one of the villages of Polna. Mo: Anna Nawratil Fa: Carl Zita I already searched http://actapublica.eu/ Jihlava Polna Record #6766. but there are about 6 other villages in Polna. I am looking for volunteers in villages of Polna to check the actual church records, since they are not available online for a ew more years. In addition there could be deaths records of Anna Nawratil and/or Carl Zita in the same chruch records from 1905 - 1908. Emilie was raised by Marie Zita (Kodim)(born in Zleby). Marie Zita and Emilie's last residence was Polna before going to Vienna and the USA. Not records in Vienna or Zleby. I have tried to hire 4 geneologists but they won't take the case because they research through the records online and are not in the area of Polna to search the records in person.

PAUL or PAVEL KOCUREK, likely born Aug. 29, 1868, emigrated from a village that sounded something like BRASAVICE possibly in Bohemia or in PRESOV region of SLOVAKIA. He left from BREMEN, Germany and arrived in NEW YORK CITY sometime in 1888. We have found a large number of KOCUREKS in the VSETIN region of current CZECH REPUBLIC, but no trace of this ancestor. Parents may have been PAUL KOCUREK & ANNIE IVONIK, farmers. Would appreciate contact with anyone else researching KOCUREKS. We have details from one of the Czech church books 1558 - 1948 catholic Vsetin Zdechov 1867-1895 vol 2492 Image 241 Index K 1 repeat of vol 2489 extra "o" in Kocourek, which shows how the name KOCUREK may have been changed by a priest to KOCOUREK.
