I am trying to trace the family of George (Geja) Nemec. His parents,any siblings or other relatives. I have noticed that there were a few areas at the turn of the century that had large populations of “Nemec” families; Westmoreland area in PA;Iowa/Nebraska and Ohio/Illinois/Indiana. He came into New York harbor but for whatever reason moved down the coast to Philadelphia while many went westward. George came over from Hrabezice, Czecho Slovakia from Bremen, Germany on November 3rd 1912 and arrived in New York on November 15th 1912. Geja officially changed his name on the Naturalization document to George. George was born January 25th 1892 Hrabezice, Czecho Slovakia He died on July 13th 1930 in Philadelphia, PA. Anna Groman (Gorma) his wife was born January 19th 1892 in Russia. The children were all born in Philadelphia: Anna b. July 18th 1917 George b. July 6th 1918 John b. June 8th 1926 The family settled in the Manyunk section of Philadelphia. • The 1920 Census record shows the following information for the family of George and Anna Nemec.The spelling on the census record was Nemek. George and Anna both emigrated in 1912 from Slovakland and their language was listed as Slovak. They resided at 3795 Rear Cresson Street, Philadelphia in the Manayunk section. The record shows that they rented the house.One of the questions asked at that time was whether the person could read or write. Both George and Anna answered YES. When I looked under another column it indicated that they could not speak English which leads me to believe that they could read and write in only their native language.
