Surnames: WACLAVIK-SCHRAMEK-PEKAR , plus LOY- BURKOWSKI-GRABOWSKI
I'm also searching for Waclawik. A ROSALIA WACLAVIK married a Joannis SCHRAMEK in either Poland or Romania, (then Austria.)
Their dau is my Grandmother, who was born 1861. She was Catholic and of German ancestry. She ended up in Paltinossa, and Gura Humorului, Bukonina, Austria,(now Romania). ROSALIA must have been born 1820--1840. Since borders and name spellings were constantly changing in those days, these folks are hard to track. I have found Waclavik,Vaclavik and Waclavik. The letter W and v were interchangeable depending on which country they came from.
One needs to consider all countries from Bohemia,(now listed under Czech)plus all countries east. That is how the migraqtion 1790-1889's occured.
Your search information should include Relegion, ethnic origin and years you are researching.

I don't know if you have received any information, but i have some info on Loy, Pekar and Sturza, all from Paltinossa Austria. Sturza are my great-grandparents and Loy is also a relative. They settled first in kansas, then in Lewis co. Washington. If there is any other information you need, maybe I can help you?

To both Kelly and Chris.
We definitely need to comunicate. Chris, might be the link to where the Waclawik family originated. Kelly you are definitely a part of my family.
My family--Joseph Pekar(changed to BAKER) married Ottilia Schramek, 1882 Catholic Church in Gurahumoruli,Bukovina. (her parents Rosalia Waclawik and Joannes Schramek). Along with 3 sons,Joseph and Ottilia came to USA March 1888 aboard SS Fulda and arrived NY. A brief stop in Missouri to visit ? ? ? , then attempted to settle at Aliceville,Kansas. A big wind blew the laundry off the line and they decided to move west to Chehalis. The Tauscher family had been trying to get them to come west. They arrived by March 1889, and settled at the top of Coal Creek Hill. Kostics,Sturzas, Rose, Loys, and Buseks followed later--all related and settling at Coal creek.
Lets share, Maybee we can help each other.

Surnames: VACLAVIK
Helen, you are on the right track, I do believe. My last name was WATZLAVICK, my Uncle was VATZLAVICK, another Uncle VACLAVICK. My ancesters came into New Orleans under the name of WALLAWIK. I have seen this name spelled WACLAVIC, WACLAVIK,
WACLAWIK, to name those I have at hand at this time. There is NO 'W' in the Czech alphabet.
When they arrived to America it SOUNDED as 'W'. In WHAT year did your ancestors come from Europe? If you write me, I can look in a book I have. The YEAR would be very important to me. And, the ship, if you have it.
