This site has initially
been developed by the Franz Farmacka branch of the Farmacka family.
We would love to have other branches join us so that we can exchange
family information. We are currently building this site and will
be adding more information weekly. We
even have our own Guest Book. Please
feel free to register and tell us all about yourself and any family
information that you have. Join us in our
Living History section to see what life
was like in those days.
Franz Farmacka (30yr) and
family: Franziska (28yr), Ludvik (Louis) (2yr),
Antone (10 months),
and two mules were originally from
Opava, NE Czechoslovakia,
in Moravia, which is on the Opava River and near the Polish border.
They departed the port of Bremen, Germany on October 1911 on the
Hannover I. The Hannover initially docked at
Philadelphia to disembark many passengers, then, continued to
for its final destination, on November 11, 1911 with 549 immigrant
passengers among it's total passenger and cargo complement. Franz
and family subsequently resided in San
Gabriel, TX after immigration processing.
If you have any family history and/or
pictures to add, please contact
Webmaster. Pictures should be submitted in digital
form such as taken with a digital camera or when you have film
developed, ask for them on CDROM. If your pictures are old paper
prints, you can have someone scan them in with a scanner. If you
don't have these capabilities, we will gladly scan them in the same day
we receive them and immediately return them to you
in their original condition.
