Researching: LEHAR
I have hardly any information about my father's side of the family, the Lehar family, except that four bothers emigrated from the Austro-Hungarian Empire in the 1800's. I believe that most of the four, if not all, settled in Missouri, USA. A family tale has been passed down that a fifth brother was accidently left on the dock and that he may have been the composer Franz Lehar. I have not been able to find anything but the most basic information about Franz. Also, I have no information about siblings, or family except minimal information concerning my grandfather. I would like any information about the Lehar family from the past, or even current European connections, including source towns and villages. Where did we come from?

Researching: BALLA, KUNDRAT
I am looking for information about the family of Andreas Balla, whose last address in 1963 was "Rozhanovce, Robotnicka c.4, Okres Kosice." He was born around l903 and had a son born about l930 who had a daughter named Marie about l956. Andreas had a second son born about l935. This son had three children as of l963, two sons and a daughter. The daughters first name started with a "K" I believe. Andreas also had a daughter born about l944. This family would be my cousins. My grandmother's name was Catherine Balla who married a Kundrat around l900. My father, Michael Anton was born in August l907 in Rozhanovce. I believe my grandmother had two brothers who she referred to as Berti and Stefan. I would like to know where any of the family of Andreas Balla now live and their addresses. Also any additional information on my grandmothers parents and grandparents, if possible.

Researching: KRAL, KRALL
My great-grandpa came from Czech Republic and we know nothing about him just what his name was (Lobos Thames Krall) and we were told/believed that Krall was changed to Kral. His name could be different. Kral or something different. He had a son who came to California and got married. They were afraid that they would get caught and have to go back so that is why we think they changed their name. They burned everything they got from there and would not talk about it, if you asked they would say not to worry about it. We know he had Brothers and sisters he never saw one of them, and where he lived. But that's all and his dad's name was Lobos who had the Thames I'm talking about as kid. If you know anything please tell me.

My grandfather, Albert (Vojtech) Dolezel was born in Ledenice in 1879. His parents were John (Jan) born April 14, 1838 and Anna Dolezel born in 1851. Anna's birthname was Hlozik.There were 8 brothers and 1 sister when they came to the USA and settled in Michigan. We do have the names of some of the ancestors from Bohemia, but would like to know about relatives still living. We are researching the Keckhut name and have traced it to 1690, Lorenz Keckhut.

The ancestors of both of my paternal grandparents came from, where I've always called, Czechoslovakia. I am very interested in seeing if anyone from my blood line still lives in the Czech Republic. My g-grandfather is Frank Joseph Homolka, born 9-3-1871 in Hlinska, Czechoslovakia. My g-grandmother is Christina Marie Sterba Homolka, born Feb. 16, 1885 in Dacice (Ducica or Dacaci), Czechoslovakia. She had approximately 6 siblings all who emigrated to the United States and settled in the Mid-West (Kansas, Missouri) except for once sister. My grandmother believes her name is Anna Peterka (??). She was the only child to remain in what became Czechoslovakia. She remained in Dacice (Ducica or Dacaci). She was the only relative, including the parents, who remained behind. Peterka should be her married name and she had around six children. The parents to Anna and Christina Sterba (my gg-grandparents) are Frank Joseph Sterba (Jul.3, 1847 also born in Dacice [Ducica or Dacaci] to March 1931) and Mary Stepanek Sterba (Aug 25, 1847 to Feb 7, 1936). According to stories my g-grandmother told my grandmother, Dacice was a 2 hour walk from Prague (or Praha). My grandmothers father was born in Hlinska, Czechoslovakia to Joseph Homolka who was born circa 1928 also in Hlinsko, Czechoslovakia and he died April 11, 1891 (apparently from pneumonia returning with his family to the 88 acres him and my g-grandfather bought in Kansas) and Katherine Vopova (no vital statistics on her). I have less information on my paternal grandfathers side. His parents are Joseph George Severa and Kathryn Pachta. I believe they were both born in or near Munden, Kansas to parents who had already emigrated from "Czechoslovakia". I am interested to go further back on the Severa and Pachta side as well as the Homolka, Sterba, Vopova and Stepanek side. I am very interested to find relatives related to Anna Peterka (??) the sister of my g-grandmother who was the only relative to remain in Czechoslovakia. They lost contact with her when my g-grandmother died in 1940.

Researching: URBAN
I'm looking for information on my husband's great grandfather, Frank Urban. He was married to a woman named Mary. He would have come to the U.S. around 1900 from the border areas of Austria - Hungary - Poland. He and his wife and some of their children are buried in the Saint Stanislaus Polish Catholic cemetery in Mammoth, PA. I know this is not much to go on for research purposes. I am hoping that someone out there is related by marriage or blood and can help us. If you have any information on Urban families that came to the U.S. during this time period from these countries would you please contact me? I will look at anything to help us. Thank you.
