I would like to find out more information about my Grandmother, Ruth Trutna (Barnard) who was born 18 Jan 1920 in Silver Lake, Minn. Her parents were Joseph Trutna and Sophie Shereda. She married William E Barnard in Wahoo, NE in 1944. I would like to find out where the family lived in the US, when they immigrated here, when Ruth moved to Wahoo.
My great grandparents, Joseph and Sophie, are buried in Wahoo, NE, as far as I know. Joseph was born in Minnesota, I believe, and Sophie in South Dakota.
I do not know who their parents were, but another post indicates that the Trutnas might have come from Gersov in southern Moravia.
