Vaclav Mazanek and Anna Myskova

I am looking for any information on my grandfather’s family. I was told my great grandmother was sent to Prague to give birth to an illegitimate child (my grandfather Vaclav) but records seem to show he was born in Hluboka in district Chlum, Sedlcany. Vaclav was born on the 26th of September, 1851 and died in Kutna Hora on the 17th of November, 1927. His wife Anna Myskova was born on the 9th of November, 1866 in Lisice.

Kadlecek

I am having trouble locating military records for my Moravian Kadlecek ancestors for the period 1761-1874. Is there information on rules for the required military service? I read somewhere, but unfortunately do not have the web URL, that sole heirs were often excused from military services. Is this correct?

Marsik

Hello, I'm trying to find any information about my great-grandmother, Mary MARSIK, who was born around 1862 in Bohemia. I have no other information about where she was from or the exact date of her birth; I have a possible passenger record for her from 1879 (coming to Baltimore from Bremen Germany) but I'm not entirely certain it's her, as it seems too early a date considering her stated age was 21 - if it is her record, then she wasn't truthful about her age. Regardless, she ended up in St. Paul, Minnesota sometime around 1882 as I find her listed in a city directory working as a "domestic." She married my great-grandfather in St. Paul on November 14, 1883, at the Ramsey County Courthouse. She had five children before her early death in St. Paul's City and County Hospital on November 19, 1894, aged 32. She is buried in Maplewood, Minnesota. So far, I have not been able to locate any records which indicate where in Bohemia she came from, when she came here, and if she came here with anyone else. I've found some records online but am really stuck with her place of origin and, as I understand it, you need to know that information to locate other records in the Czech Republic. If anyone has this surname in their family or any ideas where I may check further, I would really appreciate any insight. Thanks!

Kollar

I am seeking living relatives of the Kollar family living in Connecticut (or who did live there as recently as the 1960s or 1970s). My grandfather was Joseph Kollar, and took me to visit some relatives there when I was young, but unfortunately I don't remember where in Connecticut or their names. My grandfather Joseph's father was John Kollar, and John had a brother named Steve. Steve had at least one child named Mary. I think the people I'm looking for could be Steve's family. John, Steve, and Joseph had all emigrated from Vikartovce, Slovakia.

Tisue

I'm looking for any information on Marcus Tisue and or Mike Tisue, both of whom registered for WW I Draft in Wisconsin; listing their place of Birth as Austria-Hungary (which Czech Republic came under, pre WW I). After registering they seem to have disappeared; conjecture they returned to Europe vice fighting against homeland. I share that Sur-name, tracking the family name as far back as indenture papers about 1712 in Maryland for William Tyshew (on indenture papers), who's parent there were listed as Bastian Tyshew and Elizabeth Nee Hebron Tyshew. After indenture William moved to PA and was a Captain in Revolutionary War, he wrote his name as Tissue. His son James then dropped an S. We always pronounced as Tie-Shoe. My deduced unproven theory being that Bastian was in some way associated with Augustine Herman, the Czech Cartographer who surveyed and had a large manor in late 1600s Maryland. And that our origins are Tis U Blatna or Tis U Chotebore area of Czech Republic. Finding what happened to Marcus and or Mike Tisue or other Tisue's in Czech Republic would really help me get past deduction to more certainty of my Czech Ancestry
