Hello, I was intrested when I saw the name Falk on your post. I am just starting to do some research on my family tree and I just know rough facts. I know my mothers side is from Bohemia.(Beck) But I am not sure where Faulk is from. When I try to look it up I never find a place of origin. Do you think perhaps it to is Bohemian. Maybe the name changed when it came to this country. Anything known would be really helpful. Thanks Christie

Good Day Jerry,

In your letter, you mention a Jacob Kozina married Frances Wishka on June 2nd, 1885.

My g.g.g.grandfather Thomas Kozina had a son Jacob that would have been about 23 years old in 1885. This Kozina family lived near Stangelville and came from Tlumacov. Do you have any information that might verify that this is a connection? I have not had the opportunity to go to the Kewaunee Co courthouse to check this out.

If this is familar, then could you please let me know. My e-mail address is:

Have a Good Day,

Hi Mark,
Sure is fun to find a family member who is also researching genealogy. Acording to the information I have, we are second cousins. My Grandmother Frances Wanek Kafka and your Grandfather Leo Wanek were siblings. I haven't been at this very long and only have info going back to Joseph Wanek and Dora Kaiser from Bohemia. I am trying to find out more about them. I have recently had the opportunity to meet with cousin Shirley and hope to do so again. She told me that her brother Jerome is also researching family research. It would be great if we could share info that we find. I realize that your message was posted quite a while ago, I hope that you are still interested in genealogy. Gretchen

Working on tracking Vyska myself, thanks for the heads up on the potential variations.

My tracing so far has only led me back to Frank Vyska, born 1896. I am waiting for Social Security Info on him and will let you know what region he is from. Most os his descendants are MA residents.
