Hi Mary Jo, I don't think we have been in touch before, but I have Kotilinek and Janu ancestors in Malcice, Pisek, Bohemia. My 5th great-grandfather, Jiri Kotilinek was born on the 12th of Apr 1747 in Malcice. He is the son of Vavrince Kotilinek and Marzena whose maiden name I believe is Wosmyka. Jiri married Anna Janova 12th of Oct 1766 in Radobytce Parish, Pisek, Bohemia. She is the daug. of Frantisek Janu and Marena Bilkova.
Jiri and Anna (Janova) Kotilinek had a daug. Veronika who was born 25th of March 1771 in Malcice. Veronika married Vojtech Stech the 12th of Oct 1794 in Malcice. I am pretty sure that Veronika's brother was Jan Krtitel Kotilinek born 25th of May 1778 in Malcice and he married Anna Schneider. I know this is the family who came to Maple Lake, Minnesota, as I was sent a copy of that Kotilinek history that I believe someone referred to, that you were trying to get. Did you get a copy? Anyway, I have alot of info on this family. Please email me directly at email@example.com
as I am no longer an ancestry member although I do have 3 family trees there still. Maybe we can share and help each other. Please email me. Thanks Steve Hall
