NAVARA / RIHA -I am researching John NAVARA born 6/17/1835 in was at that time Porin, Austria, which is located south of Prague. His wife was Mary RIHA born 2 Feb1842. Her father's name was Joseph RIHA. John and Mary and 4 children arrived in the US in June of 1887, we think. We have been unable to find out anything pertaining to the ship's name, or point of departure, but we think they arrived in New York.

They settled in Minnesota, with the family settling in Stewart, MN. I had visited Porin, CZ just before the wall fell. The village was a weekend bedroom community for people from Prague. We were invited into a home for cake and were told the NAVARA family name was like Johnson in the US. It is an unusual name in the US. I would like anybody with this name to contact me if they may be a relative whose anscestors were from the village of Porin. Thanks. Marie Gilbertson Pinehurst, NC 1 March 1998

TOMAN / JIRIK / SIMONEK -Hi, I am looking for information about my grandmother and grandfather: James TOMAN and Anastasia JIRIK.  They were both born in Chicago, Illinois.  He was born in 1878, she in 1886.  I know nothing about either one of them, except that he was a "machinist."  They were Roman Catholic, I believe, as they had their son Edward Rudolph (my father) baptized at St. Genevieve Church in Chicago in 1908.  At the time of my father's birth, James TOMAN was 30, Anastasia was 22.  My father was their second child.  His brother, William, was 2 years older.  Their address at the time of my father's birth was 3415 W. Grand Ave., but the year after my father was born all the streets in Chicago were renumbered.  I cannot find any cemetery records (we believe they were buried at St. Adalbert's in Niles, IL) because the records at that time were kept according to calendar date.  We have no idea when they were buried.  I believe James TOMAN died when my father was 6 years old...around 1914.  We don't know when Anastasia died, except it was before my father met my mother, which would have been around 1930.  Another oddity:  my grandfather's name on my father's birth certificate is James TOMAN, but on the baptismal certificate (3 weeks later) he is listed as "Vincent" TOMAN.  After James TOMAN's death, Anastasia remarried several years later, we think about 6 - 8 years later, but we don't know what her new married name was.  She had a sister, Kate, who married James SIMONEK.  They had no children.  We don't know if James TOMAN had any siblings.  Any information would be most appreciated!   Janet Toman Warren 27 March 1998
