Birth: Jun. 24, 1910, Austria
Death: Aug. 13, 1981
Whatcom County
Washington, USA

John Czudek Jr was born in Hradek, Silesia, Austria on 24-JUN-1910. Today, you will find this village near the eastern border of the Czech Republic, along the Olza River, between Cesky Tesin on the north and Jablunkov to the south.

John Jr and his 30 year old mother Mari (Ruscz) Czudek departed Grudek, Austria via Bremen, Germany. They immigrated into the USA via Ellis Island on 22-JUL-1913 aboard the "SS Kronprinz Wilhelm".

Their original CZUDEK surname was incorrectly transcribed as CSNDEK in the Ellis Island database which added difficulty in finding this particular immigration record.
