Jindra Ancestors

In April 2001 Mike Jindra contracted with Pathfinders to do research in the Czech republic.
The requests were:

a) find the birth record of Jiri jindra who emigrated in 1868 and his siblings
b) find father’s birth records and his siblings.

Results:
a) It was not possible to search Jiri Jindra’s birth record in 1860 and his siblings because birth records stored in Plzen go only up to 1847 (after 1847 they are still stored at a local office). Only one sibling was found who died in 1865.

b) Jiri Jindra was born as an unlegitimate child in 1831. His siblings were found too.

The researcher was able to follow the Jindra family several generations back into the past, even with some marriage and death records. The marriage record of Jiri Jindra and Marie Krcmarika was not found in the register of marriages.

Descendants of Tomas Jindra

Tomas Jindra was born about 1756. Tomas was a bauer (farmer). He died on 6 Nov 1815 in Miletice #31 (Czechoslovakia) formerly Bohemia about age 59, and was buried on 8 Nov 1815 in Dlazov Cemetery. He died of Verstopfung (retention).

Note from Ellen: Miletice is the village name. Each house in a village had a number. Often times many generations lived in the same small house. You will notice Miletice #31 mentioned frequently throughout this section. It was not uncommon for a child to be born out of wedlock. This was often due to no church availability in the area or the husband to be had to prove he could provide for the family before the marriage was allowed.

Tomas married Klara Riba. Klara was born about 1752, died on 14 Jun 1824 in Miletice #31 (Czechoslovakia) about age 72, and was buried on 16 Jun 1824 in Dlazov Cemetery. She died of Altersschwache (high age/weakness). They had at least two children: Adam and Josef.

  1. Josef died May 13/15 1806 in Miletice #31 at age 8. Cause of death was listed as Frissel (German measels). The father of this child is listed as Tomas Jindra, Bauer in Miletice. The age of the child seems very young based on his mother’s age. She would have been 46 when he was born. This could be the grandchild of the Tomas listed above.
