Nossek, Rebro, Vitopil, Repal, Elsner, Essner

I am seeking information about the above names. Karl Nossek died in Germany. His family immigrated in the early 1900s and settled in Texas. Rebro lived in Austria or Hungary. Vitopil (Vytopyl?), Repal (Rypyl?), Elsner and Essner were from Moravia. They also immigrated about the same time and settled in Texas. Any information previous to immigration would be helpful.

Kolarik

I am searching for the place of origin for my ancestor John (Jan) Kolarik. He was born on May 16, 1840 or even possibly in 1841 in the modern day Czech Republic. In all of the American records regarding him, he is mentioned of being born in "Bohemia", but unfortunately that leaves hundreds of villages to possibly be his hometown. John immigrated between 1867 and 1869. In 1871, John married Theresa Beck at St. Wenceslaus Catholic Church at Greenstreet in Manitowoc County, Wisconsin. On John's marriage record, his parents are listed as Adalbert (Vojtech) and Marie Kolarik. This is all of the information on the ancestor that I am desperate to find. If anyone could possibly lead me in the right direction to finding him, it would truly be greatly appreciated.

Huber

My mother, Ingeborg Maria Huber, was born November 16, 1938 in Marienbad, West Bohemia, Czechoslovakia. Her father's name was Johann and her Mother was Anna Maria. Her mother had a twin sister, name unknown. My mother also had a brother named Karl, which died in 1975 in Germany. They went into Germany, and Johann and Anna Maria split for unknown reasons. Don't know if it was death or divorce. Johann remarried. How do I go about finding marital records, for Johann and Anna Maria and for Johann and his second wife? My Mother has alzheimer's and can't help me with this. I would love to find out what happened to my Grandmother and find my relatives. My mother was disowned by her father, when she married and american and came to the United States.

Sedlak

My ancestor, STEPHAN MUNKACHY, was ennobled by Emperor Ferdinand III in Bratislava in 1647-8. The records are on file in the Presov Archives. There is no record of this proclamation in any nobility publication or heraldry listing that I have been able to review. I have reviewed Family Search, Slovak Archives, and Hungarian Archives. I have reviewed nobility books, publications and Heraldry listings by the hundreds. I have no idea where Stephan came from, where he lived, died. If anyone has any search suggestions or sources I would appreciate hearing from you. sedlak93@hotmail.com

Mikolas or Mikula

I am trying to find information about my great-grandfather (John Mikolas) who came to America Nov. 1880 aboard the Nurnberg and his family before they left the old country. He traveled with his Father (Johann) and his Mother (Rosine Cernoch) and his 2 sisters. I have found a possible link between a Johann Mikolas and a Joseph Mikula(s) - brothers maybe - however I cannot confirm that the Johann Mikolas is the same person as my great-great grandfather? I am hoping someone out there can help me confirm or refute this information. Thanks very much
