I am looking for Svoboda family info. Frank (Frantiska?) Svoboda Jr. (b. 1849, in Rozmital, Bohemia) wed Petronella "Nellie" Bilek (Bilkova? Beleke?). They had at least 1 son: James Joseph Svoboda (b. 1879 in Zdolbunove, Russia, Ukraine). He emigrated to the United States and, in 1902, married Anna Opocensky (b. 1884 in Omaha, Nebraska). They had 4 children: Fred James, Norman Frank, Irma Ann, & Clara Rose "Pix". They lived in Nebraska, in Omaha and in Verdigre. I believe James had many siblings (12?) but I have no futher info. James died in 1941; his wife Anna died in 1950. Any ideas welcome at farmwed@aol.com.

Anita Antonette SVOBODA b/Apr 11, 1880 in St Paul, Howard County, Nebraska.
She died in Seattle, King, Washington , March 16, 1967. She had several brothers, possibly the same family you're searching for or related, given the Nebraska connection.
Let me know what you think, her father was Frank SVOBODA and her mother Kathleen Hatman.

Hugs,

I know there have been A LOT of Svoboda's in Nebraska, many unrelated to my family. I have 2 Frank Svoboda's of whom I am aware. My gg grandfather was Frank Svoboda (b.1849, Rozmitale, Bohemia); he married Petronnella (or Nellie) Bilek/Bilkova/Beleke (b. 1860 in County Tabor, Rozmitale, Bohemia). They emigrated to Zdolbunov, Russia when the Ukraine opened to settlers; they operated an inn near Kief. There they had 4 sons: my g grandfather James Joseph (1879), Frank, William and (?); there was also an Adolf (step-son, I believe). In 1887, in order to save these boys from compulsory military training, the family emigrated to Wahoo, Nebraska. James' obituary (1941), written in their native tongue, mentioned his brothers Frank and William "Svobodove". It doesn't sound like an obvious connection between our families. Did you know that Svoboda means "freedom, liberty"? Good Luck!!!

My Grandmother was MarieSvoboda, Duhon after she married Joseph Duhon in Hemingford, Nebraska. After Grandfather Joseph died, she married his brother John Duhon. John Duhon had a son named Frank -- still Duhon.
I know little about this family and my mother, Marie Josephine (Duhon) Sweetland doesn't talk at all about her past.
If any info, I'd love to know.

Hi! I have begun researching my husband's family and am at a loss for quite a bit of info. What I do know is that his great-grandfather, Charles Frank Svoboda was born in 1884 in Ellsworth, KS. We believe that his parents came from Bohemia through Nebraska. Your line may be linked. Would love to hear more. Kellie Svoboda
