Hi Charles My family were Cedar Rapids ,Ia. residents untill about 1946.I have some funeral records of services rendered by the Barta funeral home back in the early 1920's for deceased relatives.My mother knew the Bartas and was of Bohemian decent. There are many Bartas listed on Yahoo People find in Cedar rapids and a few phonne calls may be of some help. Also Ancestry . com Census records I have found are an excellant tool.Cedar Rapids also has some very helpful genealogy research groups that can be located on the internet.
