Czech Republic Genealogy Forum
I apologize for this intrusion into your life but I have been attempting to retrace my father's genealogy and have been stooped at every turn. My father's name was Oldrich Suchanek who was born in Kovac on May 26th, 1914 - he died here in Canada on July 14th 1978 but emigrated to Canada via the US in 1939 - it might have been during the German annexation of the Sudetenland. I am trying to piece together some of his Czech history before coming to Canada. He had two younger sisters - Marta and Josie - who have since passed away as well. I had contact with a cousin about 5 years ago but have no further information. Would you be able to direct me to someone who might know anything about my father or even some record? I recall him telling us that he arrived by ship to Ellis Island in 1939 with Thomas Bata of the shoe empire. My dad completed his undergraduate degree in engineering at the University of Prague - I believe he graduated in 1936. Any information you could provide me with would be greatly appreciated. Thank you very much for your time.
