I do not have a document. I just have info from ancestry.com. Hate to make you work, since you have been so helpful. But if you go to ancestry.com/ click on "search all records" under "search" in top banner, then enter "Marie Vocelka" and Illinois for place. You will see an entry for Marie Vocelka's death certicate. (for me, the entry was the second one. spouse: Henry Vocelka)Marie's place of birth is listed as "Spice Bukovec, Harvart, Jugoslavia" And if you "view" the document, you will find that Marie's surname is "Kasper". GEEZ. Other documents indicate "Gaspar" So you were right-on in suggesting I look for spellings other than "Gaspar".

1.additional info from a search I just did on ancestry.com. My mother's brother (Joseph Vocelka) is in the 1930 census. Wife: Adeline and a baby. The entry indicates that Joseph's parents (my maternal grandparents) were born in Czechoslovakia, rather than Bohemia - makes sense given the year was 1930.
2.My mother's favorite Uncle was Uncle Stevie (Vocelka). They all lived in Berwyn, Ill at one time. I found WWII draft card and U.S. naturalization record for a Steve Vocelka. He lists his place of birth on the naturalization record as "Austria: Yugoslavia" and on the WWII draft card (in his handwriting!) as Veliki Grdjevac, Jugoslavia. And, yes, the two "Steve"s are the same person. Muddy waters!
