Sisters Sophia and Nettie Basta came to Scott County (Jordan township, near New Prague) between 1868 and 1877. What name variations should I look for in Czech church records? for Nettie: Antonia? Annette? Anetscka? For Sophia: Josefa? Josephine? Sofia? Re the surname, could they have come as Busta? Thanks for any help and suggestions


Antonia/Antonie for Nettie… For Sophia, I think it would probably be Sophia/Sophie or Zofia/Zofie depending on the area.
