I am trying to find how two families came over and where did they come from?

The first is a Anton Hudek (1816) who on one of the census shows Bohemia (Aust) so does his wife Anna (1823) their children were:
Joseph Anton Mary John Ann and Frank
They ended up in Wisconsin Iowa and Grant counties.
son Frank shows citzenship in 1869.

The 2nd Family is August (1846) and Augustine Drager both born in Germany, and got their citzenship in 1884. Emil and Emmas came over with them. The rest of their children we born in Wisconsin: Lenord, Albert, Elizabeth and William.

I have check gardencastle.com but could not find anything. Any suggestions on free web sites to look for?

Some websites for your research.
www.linktoyourroots.hamburg.de
www.genealogienetz.de/reg
www.cgsi.org

An old detailed map:

A map of Bohemia:

Check for them in a Bohemians to America and Germans to America. (something similar).
They could have come thru Baltimore, Boston, Philadelphia, or Galveston. Check even Ellis Island's manifests. www.ellisislandrecords.org I do know that your ancestor will not be there but family went to family in those old days, so never know who you might find.

Kathryn,
Hello my name is Amy Hudek Terry and I am the great grand daughter of Joseph Hudek who was Anton and Anna Hudek's son. I have heard that a census shows Anton being from Wlasim, Bohemia and Anna being from Tabor, Bohemia. But our family legend has it that they came from Kracovice in the province of Tabor not far from Prague. I have since tried to locate this village but I believe the spelling to be wrong. I have a cousin who went to the Czech Republic and she came back with a different spelling of Krakovcice. It is said that they lived in house Number One. I hope this might help you find more information about Anton and Anna as I would love to know more too, but am not even an amateur genealogist yet.
