Hello I am Jeffrey B Foytek Jr.
Son ofcourse of Jeffrey B Foytek Sr

My grandfather was Joseph Foytek originaly Fojtik, changed name due to a mail problem always getting wrong mail :P

He married a Joan Beeson of England and had 2 boys
My father Jeff Foytek Sr.
and Joseph Foytek Jr.
He also had 3 Girls
Jane and
Jennifer who have all maried since

This part of the family is from Phillips Wisconsin where my grandfather had several sisters and brothers.

My grandfathers father was another Joseph Foytek who brought the family to Phillips via chicago from moravia which they departed in 1908 this was there second attempt at coming to the US from the storys i was told and they originally tried earlier but got stuck in the coal mines of pennsylvania where they had to work hard in bad conditions to earn money to go back to moravia! Hope this is of interest to anyone out there and I am very interested in all of this.

Myself I live currently in San Diego Ca and I have been in the US Navy for about 9 years now.
