Czech Newspapers of the 1800s in the US
I am unable to unearth information about my great grandfathe who came from somewhere in Bohemia in the late 1800s. He lived in Chicago then Iowa, and maybe before Chicago elsewhere. I know that he was an avid reader of a Czech newspaper I don't know which. But I was hoping to find a database for these early papers, probably out of the midwest, to see if his name was ever included in it. Any ideas on these publications? I don't know if they were considered newspapers or what else. If you know anything about this subject, please share.
