My maiden name is Safarik. My dad was Delbert Safarik, his father was LeRoy and his grandfather was Joseph Frank James Safarik, and I think Joseph's father was Frank. My grandpa, LeRoy, was born in Mercer county, MO. Joseph and Frank apparently came over from Czech. I believe they settled in the Nebraska area~Omaha has a strong Czech settlement. I've had difficulty locating any connections to this family other than my immediate family members. Do any of our names fit with your history?
