I need to find information and paperwork on my great-grandmother, Karolina
Hochfelder who was born in Vysoka, Hungary (now Czech Republic) on October
4, 1894 or 1895. Married name is Caroline Zongora.

I've found her on jewishgen with a link to her arrival records in Ellis Island:

Departure: Bremen
Arrival: New York - October 9th, 1910
Ship Name: George Washington

What I really need is her birth certificate, but IĆ¢??m not sure which country to
approach or how to request the documentation. Any help with direction to
resources would be greatly appreciated.
Hi Brandon,
I think you are referring to a village called Vysoka nad Kysucou in Slovakia (not
Czech Republic). According to my search results, many Hochfelders originated from
this place situated in Zilina region, Cadca district.
According to a comment in Internet
(http://www.surnameweb.com/Felder/surname-origin.htm) Hochfelder (meaning High
Fields) are Jewish people originating >from Vysoka (meaning High in Slovakian).
