Illegitimate children

You know them - there are tens or hundreds of them in the registries. Children where no father is written, illegitimate children. What was their status? How they lived? Why are there so many of them? I try to provide answers - and a bit more, some (probably funny) examples too.

Immigrants from Kuželov, Moravia

Kuželov is located in the area of Bílé Karpaty (White Carpathians) near borders between Moravia and Slovakia (formerly Upper Hungary). It always was poor region and many people left this area to search for better life across the sea. And sometimes, in some cases, there are notes about their new life in America in the registries. This blog post brings list of those who have such note and were born between 1880 and 1892.
