could someone please tell me what "antos" would be from. on my grandmothers
death cert it says that she is of german descent, it also said that her
mothers name was "andes" but on all of her and her brothers social security
forms it says that her mothers name was "antos".
i was also wondering how do i go about getting information from the towns of
rohetec and chotebot and kolomerice if im not sure who was born in what town
or married in what town.

not sure of the year or port that they entered? ive hit so may brick walls
and am waiting for a lot of social security forms to hopefully give me some
direction but they are taking at least three months to get sent to me.
i thank you ahead of time for any help that i recieve and sorry for the long
