What a coincidence! My ancestors have roots in India. One migrated to Mauritius island in the Indian Ocean. I found my way to Belgium since 25 years.

I will not claim any connection with Anna Fakun though!

Just to let you know about this.

My mother was born Jennie Annie Jerabek. Her father was Otto Paul Jerabek. I do know that some time in the early 1920's they lived on the south side of Chicago. He either owned or was editor for a newspaper called La Bohem. My mother had told me that they were remotely related to President Bemish of Czechoslavia (this was about the same time Hitler was in power). I would love to be able to trace the Jerabeks.

Yes, my husband is a Jerabek. His grandfather was Anton Jerabek, Jr. who was born in Moravia in about 1858 and his grandma, Josie Peschel or Bescher (?) was born in Bohemia about 1871. They were married in Minnesota in 1891. Let me know if you see any possible connections. Thanks!

I have seen Anton Jerabek in ancestry.com documents, but
have not been able to make any connection with either my
grandfather Otto P. nor with his father V. Cenek. V. Cenek
could be related to Anton or any of the other Jerabeks I've seen, but cannot make any connection to any of them. He
came directly from Bohemia and became a US citizen in the late 1800's and settled in Chicago. I don't know if any other his other family members came with him. I do not have the international search on ancestry.com.

I have noticed a lot of Jerabeks settling in Minnesota.
Good luck with your search!
