Up to 1918 it was where 12 different languages were spoken. Do tell us the language of your ancestor as well as religion.

KUS^NIR in 1995 in Slovakia:

Her arrival manifest would have her place of birth.
If she married in USA than the church marriage record would have a place of birth. If she was naturalized citizen than the naturalization intent and petition will have her place of birth. If she had social security number than most likely parents names as well as her place of birth would be on her SS-5Form.

Contact Churches in area and see if she was married there. If so, sacramental records may note her parents' names and/or place of birth.

Good Luck!

They were married in Czechoslovakia (first child born there). Since she is buried in St. Nicholas Cemetery, I would start with:
St Nicholas Byzantine Catholic Church
320 Washington St, Perth Amboy, NJ 08861
Phone: (732) 442-0418
Check on sacramental records - baptisms of children, etc. See if they perhaps have a 'copy' of marriage cert. on file. Or any documentation regarding ancestral village or her parents' names. Maybe they have copy of obit as well.

I believe this is the same family that are in the 1930 census I posted. Husband's name is Michael. Ancestral home is Joredarma, Czechoslovakia. Still checking to see what it is called today. Maybe Zlatica would be kind enough to help on this.

30 Kusmir, Anna Joredarma, Czechoslovakia 26 1896 1922

Anna Kusmir am 23 September 1922 on the ship 'Hannover' from Bremen to New York.
Stefan Kusmir am 23 September 1922 on the ship 'Hannover' from Bremen to New York.

Do you know if YOUR Anna's husband's name was Michael?
