I am planning a trip to Iowa to further my research for my family members. I am looking for your vast wisdom on resources that would be helpful in my search.
This is what I do know: John came from Bohemia in 1890 and his wife, Mary, came to US in 1895 with their two oldest children. Their first child born in US was born in Protivin, Howard County IA (the year is disputed.) Their second child born in US was also born in Protivin in 1898 (my grandfather.) I have another child born in Lawler, Chickasaw Co. in 1905.
I want to find documentation of where they lived while in Protivin, but I don't know where to look. Can someone tell me where to look next?
(The earliest census I have listed them as living in Chickasaw Co, Utica Twp on the 1910 census.)
Of course my ultimate goal is to find out the circumstances of their coming to US and where in Bohemia they came from. Also why they chose Iowa, and if they had other relatives in US.
ANY info would be much appreciated!!
Hi, My ggrandparents lived in Howard Co. IA in 1880 - Henry Clay Sigler and
Augusta ? I think they were married in 1880 in Cresco. I am trying to find
Augusta's maiden name. Shortly after they were married they moved to WI.
Could someone look to see if they actually did get married in IA? I would
like to order the marriage cert. but keep running into roadblocks where
Augusta is concerned. Thank you, Joanne
