Hi! I'm tracing the lineage of Joseph J. DuBan, my grandfather.
Pop was born in Pennsylvania on 1/17/24 and recently passed away on 5/28/10. His father is Stephan (or Stephen or Stefan) was born in Vienna in 1885. Stephan's wife, Helen (Helena) nee. Moravcik (or Morawczik)was born in 1887 in Bratislava. They had two children prior to coming to the US: Francis (Francisek)in 1909 and Mary (Magdalena)in 1914. Both children are reported to have also been born in what is now Slovakia.
Pop was married twice. In the first marriage, Pop had 2 sons. That marriage ended in divorce or annulment. Joseph then married Mae Oswald and had two sons. I'm the daughter of their youngest son.
I'm looking for any information to trace my grandfather's line back further than my great grandfather. My grandmother's line was a breeze! But I want to know where my direct ties to the family name are from.
If anyone has any information, I would greatly appreciate if you could share it with me.
