Gans Family in Czechia #austria-czech

I am researching the GANS family who lived in East Dobruska in what is now Czechia. So far, I have only been able to trace my family once they crossed the Atlantic to the US in the 1880s. Here are the names of the ancestors who I know:

* JACOB GANS (b. 1855) & wife ROSA Roth GANS (b. 1858), children: SAMUEL (b. 1882) & JOSEPHINE (b. 1884) 

* Jacob's parents: JACOB GANS (b. early-mid 1800s) & wife MARY GANS (b. early-mid 1800s)

Jacob & wife Mary Gans remained in Czechia and did not travel to the US, so I am beginning my research with them, as well as Rosa & Jacob in hopes that some Czech records captured some of their information before they immigrated to NY. Any & all help appreciated.

Is the attached death record of  your ancestor, Jacob Gans ?  It gives birthplace as "Hungary" .  Dobruska in Czechia  does not seem to fit with Hungary.  You wrote "East Dobruska", but on a quick search could not find that place.

Catherine,

Probably:

Alternate names: Dobruška [Cz], Gutenfeld [Ger], Dobruschka

Try searching for old records at:
the JewishGen Austria-Czech Database
https://www.jewishgen.org/databases/AustriaCzech/

Always a good idea to use a soundex search on names.

Good luck in your search,
