    Male 1822 - Aft 1892  (70 years)

    Personal Information    |    Notes    |    Sources    |    Event Map    |    All    |    PDF

    • Name Josef SOMER  [3, 4, 5, 6
      Born 23 Jul 1822  Slatina No. 7, Bohemia Find all individuals with events at this location  [2, 6, 7, 8
      • Another researcher had stated to me that his birth year was 1832, but I read the marriage record to indicate that his birth was in 1822.

      Chric 08, Page 13
      Christened 23 Jul 1822  [9
      Gender Male 
      Died After 1892  Podmokly, Bohemia Find all individuals with events at this location 
      • I have shown his death as after 1892 when his last child was born.
        [3]
      • By 1898, Josef may have died or he's living with a child, other than Podmokly 79, because I see that there is a death of a Fisher in 1898 at Podmokly 79 (see Zvikovec 09, Page 99)
      • I found one immigration for a "Josef Sommer" coming to the U.S. on 9 Aug. 1900. It states that this Josef was about 77 years old (thus born in 1823), so that would fit, however, the immigration document states that this Josef lived in Heide, Germany.

        Parish register of Zvi≠kovec No. 4, book of baptisms, 1850-1868
        Page: 290-291
        Date of birth: Apr 27, 1863

        We then attempted to find birth records of Anastazie's parent. Her father should have been born in Slatina, place of origin of his father. Therefore, we examined the Parish register of Chric No. 8, book of baptisms, 1815-1848, but the record was not found there. We also focused on Barbora Fronkova's baptismal record that should have been born in the Parish register of Zvikovec No. 2, book of baptisms, 1772-1839, but again it was not found. Moreover, no trace after either of these families appeared in these registers. Seeking more information about the origin of the couple, we found their marriage record.

        From the abovementioned records we learned that Josef Sommer married twice. His first wife and mother of Frantisek Blecha's Anastazie (*1863) was Barbora Fronkova°. She apparently died after the birth of the second child of the couple, Barbora (*1866) and Josef remarried only before the birth of his third child, Josefa (*1875). No other child of Josef Sommer was found between 1866 and 1875. We tried to find a death record of Barbora Fronkova° in the Parish register of Zvikovec No. 9, book of deaths, 1835-1907, but it was not detected there. Since the marriages of widowers were usually performed in their parish districts, we also looked for the marriage record of Josef and his second wife Barbora Svejkovsk√° in the Parish register of Zvikovec No. 6, book of marriages, 1765-1905, but we did not find it. Thus, their marriage presumably occured in the parish district Barbora Svejkovsk√° belonged to.
