How do I find place of birth of my 2 gg mother Antonia/Antoinette /Antoine nee' Pekárek married name Karel, no known marriage license in America at this time. Antoinette nickname "Nellie" was born 8 Sep 1854/55 somewhere in bohemia, Czech republic, Slovakia, Austria, and passenger lists nothing except bohemia when she entered castle garden in 1872 at age 17. Record lists she was a farmer. She was a cigarmaker here in America. Married Wenzl/Waclar Karela/Karel bed 1875 which was birthdate of my gg mother Anna nee'Karel Dippel died in 1952. Antoinette died Apr 3 1940 at 7111 Woodside Ave,in Winfield community of Queens Borough in NY. She is buried in Evergreen Cemetery. I've checked census, have death cert, no so ial security number listed. Do I go and get done a freedom of I fo inquiry to find possible place of birth. Where do I go to find place of birth when no known social security documentation is listed for the time. Other sources? Thanks Karen

Can anyone tell me what records to check. The CIA which checks the freedom of info requests told me that I had to provide a place or village of birth. My 2 ggma listed bohemia,Germany,Austria as her birth place. I found some early records in Slovakia, but nothing to tie her with the families there and in Hungary.So don't contact the CIA online because they can't help you. I'm not even replying back to them. No use Did find a genealogy index that looks promising though. Any tips would be appreciated. Thanks Karen
