My great grandmother Mary Kriz. She was born in Dec 1871 in Bohemia. I believe her parents were Mateji Kriz and Anna Beran. Mary immigrated to America in 1892 at age 21 and settled in Chicago. She later married Valcav Svec. Any imformation would be useful.

Michael, I think I imailed you about my svecs, I am not sure. My gm was Marie Svec born 1884 in Bohemia she married a Frank Luzar/Luzer in Chgo they lived around the 18th st area. Her Father was Thomas Svec and her mother was Barbora Chaloupka. But I don't know anything about her father's parents or siblings. There is a possible connection with a Vavrinec Svec who's father was Petr Svec and mother Katherina Barta or Borta. All from Bohemia. I have a lot of information about a lot of Svecs in Chgo including much information from the St. Procopius church where many of them attended. I have a lot of baptismal/birth info from those church rolls with many svec names with maiden names of the wives. covering the late 1800s and early 1900s.

this is for a friend- Her mother, Antonie Svec, came to US in 1909 from Austria/Bohemia-We think Svirapice (?) She was 16 according to the ships records. a Marie Svec, age 27, also came. We dont know if related, ut it seems most likely they are. Do you think you may have any information of these girls?

I believe these are different Marie Kriz's and I don't think there is a connection. I have recently found my g.grandmother Marie Kriz arrived in New York on the ship Werra in 1892. She was from the small village of Nevrazy near Pilsen.
