Thank you. Bill Streitz
A cousin of mine found a potential candidate for our common ancestor in the
Hamburg Passenger Records, departing Hamburg on the 25 Mar 1868 bound for
NY. Her last residence was listed as Zaliezi, Böhmen. This is pretty
clearly written in Latin script, so Im fairly confident about that
transcription. Unfortunately, I cant figure out the modern Czech name.
If this is the correct record for my ancestor (the name, age, and date of
arrival match), then I would have expected her to come from the area around
Prachatitz (Cz. Prachatice), because upon arriving in Wisconsin, she married
a fellow from there, and a few years later, several of her sisters and
nieces appear in the Hamburg Passenger Records with their last residence
listed as Prachatitz.

I strongly believe that you mean Zaluzi, which was the German village
Saluschen, sometimes spelled Salluschen in the district of Mies, which is
now called "Stribro" and located in Western Bohemia. The people spoke a
Bavarian German Oberpfalz dialect, called Egerlaenderisch.
Go to this site for location and identification:

America back about 1860 to 1880. Has anyone had any luck with looking at
the Hamburg passenger lists? If so are they on line?
