Unless you have some idea of the destination of Marie Tintera and Ema, this is a real tough one. New York city is an absolute nightmare to do research in for Bohemian (or any nationality) emigrants! You might try the 1900 soundex microfilm for New York. If they stayed in the state they SHOULD show up. I'm finding out through trial and error that this isn't always the case. I have some relatives who I know were in New York City on a particular date but can't find them on federal census. With the immigrants not speaking English and the enumerator not being terribly careful with spellings, it's no wonder names are not found. In some cases the Ellis Island database gives destination of those getting off the boat. There are people who will research names for a fee.
