QUERIES for April 1998

The queries on this site will eventually be posted to the GenConnect Query Forum.

BALLALATAK / BALLALTICK / CHARLOTT -I'm limited on what information I can supply, but here is what I think is true.

My mother's father was from Czech. or Austria, born around 1880 to 1887 July 15th ?? name of John BALLALATAK (BALLALTICK) immigrated to USA in early 1900's and was married prior to entry to Rose CHARLOTT (charlett) born 1887's, died 1929 in Iowa, USA, from a Catholic religious affiliation, as we were raised in a strict Catholic family style. My father worked 2 jobs to keep us in Catholic schools, and my mother was a full-time mother in the home. 1948 to my 1960's my mother, Helen Frances BALLALATAK, was born, Dec. 24,1920, in Iowa-- has no birth certificate and had to find 2 people that knew her since birth to verify her birth to get married in Iowa in 1940 or 41, and died 1988 in California, USA. I know that there was at least 13 to 18 siblings in the John / Rose BALLALATAK family. There was a John Jr., Frank, Joe, Mike, Anne, Catherine, Mary, Helen others I'm not sure of, but I think there were 12 or 13 that lived to adults, and some that died very young, like infants or under 12 yrs. Other states that were home to the BALLALATAK family before my mother's birth were Minnesota and Wisconsin, also the port of entry. I don't know which port was the entry, and the date doesn"t know. Since my mother was the youngest and lived in California since marraige in the 1940's, she had nothing to help in my search, and the contact with siblings was not much since she was now in California, and the roots were in Iowa. She was a female and youngest; the boys were the ones that counted in the family and perhaps the oldest girl since the Rose died when my mother (Helen) was 8 yrs., and Anne took on the role of the mother and female head of the household till she married. Mother was the last to leave home and was not thought to marry due to the fact that she was to take care of their father; after all she was the youngest and the girls were responsible to care for the men, quite simply putting it. Its the way in those day old European days, kind of the pecking order of life. So if you have any suggestions or ideas for help. I know that many of the countries in Europe didn't have a system of record keeping, the churches did it all: birth, marriages, baptismal, events, and death. And I can't even vouch for the spelling of the name because of the language problem. Neither of them spoke English and my mother (helen) spoke Czech I think till she left married, and then lost the use of it since she was away from her family. I can only remember her speaking it when she was very angry or mad, it would just come out before she could think in English, and I guess you might say I understood it, but was not encouraged to use anything but English, especially out of the house. And I assume it was that way as a foreign tongue was not for the new life in America. What a shame! There is also a Baltzley family name my fathers mothers I'm not sure if it was Dutch, German, or what origin it has to it. Well, I'm a good melting pot I'm sure, but the BALLALATAK roota are my dead end, so any help or sharing is greatly appreciated. PAMELA WOODWARD P.O.

KREMLICKA -I am looking for any information on the KREMLICKA family. It is very small. I know of only 2-4 families other than mine in the USA. I understand from the CGSI that there are more in the Cz.Republic. My problem is that I've no indication of where my gt grand parents lived before they came to this country nor do I know how they entered the country - possibly through Canada.

So my query is for any information on the KREMLICKA family. Gt grnd fr Jacob, July 21, 1834(or 33) - May 18, 1911 - Detroit Entered USA 1866, w Jospehine c1829-March 5, 1894 Detroit, maiden name possibly "Payer" or something that sounded like that. children: Joseph Feb 10, 1864 - Nov 18, 1941 - Chicago; Mary Feb 24, 1866 - April 2, 1947 Detroit; Frank (my gd fr), Oct 21, 1868 Detroit - Oct 34, 1952 and Anna Aug 25, 1874 Detroit- April 8, 1952 Detroit). My gd father had only one son. The 2 sisters were unmarried. Family may have been in Prague before they came to USA. Home town in Bohemia may have been either Tyn N Vltavou or more probably Pocatky based on information I have gleaned over the 25 years I've worked on this off and on. Contact with any others Kremlick(a) family would be welcomed. I do have a brother in SC but that's it. Kurt J. Kremlick, Jr. My current phone number in case you would want to call is 313-534-5343. We are in the process of moving sometime this summer (we hope) to the Kalamazoo area but will stay on Juno. 8 April 1998

TRAMPOTOVA / TRAMPOTA / MICHALOVIC / MICHALOVICOVA /KHORK -I need help in locating information about my greatgrand parents. Here's what is known about them. In about 1903 a ship arrived in Canada on this ship were my great grandparents and their parents. My great grandfather Joseph ?? was 17 (b.1886 Austria) and my great grandmother Rosa TRAMPOTOVA was 16 (b.1887 Prague, CZECH}. On the ship they fell in love, but we're forbidden to marry. Rosa would have married beneath her, if she married Joseph and her family would disown her. Well they married anyways, probably in Winnapeg. I can't locate any information on Joseph and Rosa till they moved to North Dakota in 1912. The reason for not being able to locate information is that when they came to the states, Joseph worked for the railroad and they BADLY misspelled his surname to KHORK. With out the correct spelling of this surname, I can't locate any records. I've tried searching for the name TRAMPOTA and have located some in Canada and Texas and wrote to them, but have never received anything back from them. Maybe since Rosa was disowned, they are disowning any of her descendants also, I don't know. I have a copy of a grave monument with the names MICHALOVIC / MICHALOVICOVA and TRAMPOTOVA on it. I also have a picture of Rosa and her family when she was a little girl. The picture shows Dad, Mom and 3 girls and 3 boys. On the bottom of the picture imprinted it says Prahia-Cèchy, below this in the left corner is J.Kolar in the middle is a symbol of three circles with faces in them, there's something on the right, but I can't read it; the copy is very bad. I know this is very little to go on, but it's all I have to work with. Does anyone have any ideas for me.
