I can not for the life of me find anymore information on a couple people in my tree. My great grandfather, John "Jean"Baptist Wuillay, Wuillay-4. Can't find anything other than his arrival info. The other is Frank Pivonka. Pivonka-16 It seems like I get to another country and they vanish.

For your French ancestors you might want to take a look at filae.com at https://www.filae.com/

For your Czech ancestors, while there is a tremendous amount online from the Czech regional archives, you need to know the village they came from. If you think you know the village, genteam.at can help with finding the right Archive. It has the village names in both Czech and German, which is essential to know.

Naturalization records will sometimes give a place of birth.
