I'm from Minnesota. My parents are William and Lynette Profant. My granfather was Michael Wallace Profant. He was born on December 24, 1917. I'm guessing about the year. but its close to that year. All I know is that he was in some kind of Checkalsuvockia camp before he came to the states. thats what I was told anyway. He had one brother (not sure of the name) and I believe a sister also. Same as the brother not sure of name. He was married to Elsie (do not know madain name). They had two boys. Theadore and William. William (my Father)was born November 17th Not sure of year.I believe my dad and my uncle were born in the yearly forties. I was born May 6 1974, and my sister was born September 24 1971. If u have any clues or any way to help me to go farther back then that please HELP ME thank u.

my grandfather is named Michael Profant, my great grandfather was also named Michael Profant. I am named after them both, but I am female so they made it Michaela Profant. I am looking for any info on either man, I know that they were originally from czech and then ended up in Minnesota. Maybe we could compare info and see if we can get anywhere.

Oh yeah, your dad was born in 1942. Grandma's maiden name is chalman but swedish is spelled differently. I believe it is spelled kjhmenn. I have the correct spelling at the office. I will keep you informed.
