Jirschele/Eirschele is not one of my lines, but I have been working in Czech parish registers lately and found the baptism record for Johann Jirschele (John Eirschele Sr.) who settled in Town of Clifton, Monroe County, Wisc., before 1870. He was born in 1834, immigrated to the US in 1853, died in 1906, and burial was at St. Michael's south of Oakdale.

I have been working in the online parish registers from the Czech Republic looking for immigrants to Vernon and adjacent counties in Wisconsin. I grew up near Tomah and have one Czech immigrant line, but am interested in the overall migration of Czechs and Germans from Bohemia to this part of Wisconsin.

Today I learned how to download parish registers from the Zamrsk archive website.

Here is what I could decipher from the record I found for Johann Jirschele:

Baptized 10 Aug 1834 at Rathsdorf [now Skuhrov], Johann Nepom. [Nepomuk is a saint name, not a last name], FATHER: Johann Jirschele [occupation farmer?] (son of the deceased Johann of Rathsdorf No. 6, and of the deceased Josepha daughter of the deceased Joseph Poschl . . . ), MOTHER: Barbara daughter ("tochter") of Joseph Pirkl [occupation farmer?] of [place name starting with Na__] No. 19, and of Sophia daughter of Franz Jansa [occupation starting with "h"] of Gross Ritte [now Hylvaty] No. 26.

Note: Rathsdorf is now Skuhrov in Usti nad Orlici district, Pardubicky region, Czech Republic.

I am interested in connecting with others who are researching ethnic Czech or German immigrants from what was called Bohemia, now Czech Republic, to Monroe County particularly the southeast part (Oakdale, Clifton, Glendale, Welllington, and Wilton). Names also inlcude Arzt, Honl, Tuma, Erie/Jira, Blazek, Blaskey, Prochaska, Adamec, Herda/Hardy, Kolowrat.
