Researching: KOTAL, VRANA, STERBA
My g-grandfather was named Jan (John) Kotal. I have been told it might be a shortened version of another name. Information given us says he was married when he came to America in the late 1800's, but his wife died enroute. He had two daughters from that marriage, Teresa and Mary. Jan was born May 9, 1861 in Czechoslovakia. He died in November, 1915, in Houston, Texas. Jan married my g-grandmother in America. Her name was Antonije (Antonia) Vrana. She was born December 12, 1868, in Czechoslovakia, and died November 24, 1949 in Houston, Texas. Her father was Vaclav Vrana, born 1847 in Czecholsovakia. Her mother's first name was Elizba. Elizba was born in 1845. Antonije came to America in 1899 with her mother, father, brother, and four children of hers from a previous marriage. Antonije's married name was Sterba at the time she came to America. We are at a complete standstill. Your help will be greatly appreciated.

Researching: KOLAR
I am searching for information on Emil Kolar, who died in the Chicago area in the first week of March, 1945. He left a daughter, Anne born December 23, 1901 (my grandmother) but his wife apparently died in 1926, also probably in the Chicago area. Her name seems to have been Kate, but the family Missal (printed in Vien, 1870) indicates a Barbara Kolar giving it to Anne. Tthere was reportedly quite a fued between Emil and his family (supposedly a large family) which caused him to leave.

Researching: HRADECKY
My ancestor Venceslaus Hradecky was born in Velke Mezirici, Moravia in about 1750 and he had three sons (Johann born 1775, Venceslaus born 1766, and Antonin born 1777). I am descended from Johann's son Vaclav (born 1800 in Velke Mezirici). However Johann had three other sons (Johann born 1809, Antonin born 1811, Ernest Maximilian born 1816 all in Velke Mezirici). My great great grandfather Vaclav (born 1800) had 26 children in total with three wives, and I have the names of 15 of those children (all born in Velke Mezirici). Two of the Vaclav's sons, Eduard and Josef, moved to Pacov (southern Bohemia, between Tabor and Pelhrimov) in 1876 and started a company there producing distillery equipment. I have compiled a lot of information from the archive in Brno, but as soon as one of the sons moved to another town (or country), it is very difficult to track them. My particular branch of the family is completely documented, but I am especially interested in tracking down the descendants of some of the male Hradeckys who "dead-end" on my family tree in the 1800s.

My grandmother, Barbara Fitak, was born in the county of Arva in the town of Rapcsa (?Rapcsice) in 1894. I am searching for its location in Arva. My grandfather, Michael Hoholak, was born in the county of Saros in the town of Alsokomarnok in l888. I am also searching for it. No modern maps seem to have them. Barbara Fitak was the daughter of Andreae Fitak and Rosaliae Vronka. Michael Hoholak was the son of Theordori Hoholak and Anna Nemcik. Michael emigrated to the US about l909-1910 as did Barbara, but separately. Grandfather's relatives were likely in the Czech part of the Austria-Hungarian Empire and grandmother's relatives in the area around Budapest, an area to which they moved.

Researching: HANUS, MACH
Looking for any information on my grandparents Leo Hanus & Mary Mach. They both immigrated to the United States in 1907. Leo arrived on the SS Chimentz in 1907 and originally settled in San Angelo, Texas. Joining him was his father and mother and three brothers (Louis, Jerry, and Charles). Very shortly they left San Angelo and resettled in Omaha, Nebraska. My grandmother arrived about the same time landing in Baltimore and went to Cedar Rapids, Iowa. They both then met in Omaha and my father (Leo A. Hanus) was born on September 6, 1908. My grandfather passed away at the age of 92 and my grandmother about 5-6 years earlier. Both resided in David City, Nebraska, when they died. We have been able to contact some of our relatives in the Czech Republic and have visited them on 2 occasions as well as one visit from them to the United States about 5 years ago. These relatives are descendants of my great Aunt Maria Hanus (sister of my grandfather). She along with 3-4 other brothers did not emigrate to the US in 1907. We know very little about my grandmother's family other than their was some hard feelings and the family was not very fond of my grandfather. This is the reason they both left Europe for the US. Last summer we did make contact with some residents of the town where they lived and actually visited the house where my grandmother was raised. More information on the Mach family would be appreciated. My father and mother (Leo & Kristine Hanus) reside in Columbus, Nebraska. My wife (Lorraine) and I live in Lewisville, Texas, which is a suburb outside of Dallas. We have three children, Debra, Leo Henry, and Amy. Our daughters live in the Dallas area and our son is doing graduate work at the University of South Carolina in Columbia.

Researching: PRASIL, PRASCHIL, STRELEC, KUNCL, REGAL, PEROUTKA, CERNY
Researching Prasil (Praschil), Strelec, Kuncl, Regal, Peroutka, and Cerny. I have information to the eighteenth century on Prasil family - they were from Domazlice in Western Bohemia. But I need information especially on the Kuncl family that was situated in the U.S. in Cicero and Berwyn, Illinois - the Prasil's were there as well. My grandmother was a Prasil (Julia Prasil) and my grandfather was a Kuncl (Charles Kuncl). My great grandparents on my grandmother's side were Jiri (George) Prasil and Anna Strelvoca (Strelec) from Domazlic in Bohemia. Jiri was born in 1862 and died in 1936 and Anna was 1869 to 1908. I am going to visit The Czech Republic next year (1998) and I hope to go to Prague and Domazlice to see what I can of my ancestral roots. Any information will be helpful.
