Immigrant Ship Records

Page last modified 7 months ago

This is a collection of ship records of arriving Czechs that have connections to Rawlins County. Included are:

  • Rawlins County Pioneering Czechs arrived on.
  • Families that are ancestors of Czechs that eventually lived in Rawlins County (such as Cidlik, Spicka, Pallas).
  • Families that have close ties to Rawlins County Czechs (such as Psikal, Borek, Chapek, etc).

Not all came directly to Rawlins County, but probably settled in other Czech communities before coming to Rawlins County, communities like Brown County KS, Saunders County NE, Gage County NE, and Clay County NE.
