Surnames: Stehno
Dear Christina: Thanks for your response. My Stehno grand-
father lived in Wilson, Ellsworth County, Kansas. He died
early in the 1900s, do not have the exact date here. I do
have a circular chart for the entire family living in KS or
related to this branch of Stehnos. If you can come up with
any relations in KS on your family tree, there is a possible
connection. Will be glad to hear from you!

Hi John: I am interested in your email message about the
Stehnos of Wilson, Kansas. My grandmother was the second
wife of Frank Stehno b. 1830, d 1907 in Wilson. I just
checked the copy of the big circular family chart of the
Stehno family which lists 5 generations but my fast look
at it turned up no "Kratzer" surname. So you will have
to explain the connection, please. Thanks for communi-
cating! Lucille Murray

Urbanek village

Surnames: Urbanek, Fenzl
My ancestors, John Urbanek and Maria Fenzl immigrated to the US with daughters Anna and Terresia in 1865 from Lednice, Bohemia. The Urbanek family, as far as I can tell, was all from Lednice. The other families were: Wankin-Lednice; Marzik-Kopidlo; Plachetkin-Babina; Fenzl-Hadaczka; Chlup-Rauda; Kral(Kralove)-Hadaczka; and Telin-Czeczin.

Lednice was completely destroyed, all inhabitants killed when Hitler invaded in WWII.

Any additional information on these names appreciated!

Surnames: Urbanek, Bernasek
Dear Cathy: None of those surnames are in our family so far
and the villages sound totally unfamiliar. Are they near the Polish border?

I had a breakthrough on Thanksgiving Eve 2000. I found my
grgfa Urbanek's date of arrival in U.S. also confirmed that
he immigrated with a sister whose husband named Bernasek had
come from Prodeslavy, Bohemia. Wish I could help you. I am
familiar with the name Kral but connected to the other side
of my family where my great uncle married Katherine Kral.

Good luck in your hunting-- Lucille

Kral/Bernatsky

Surnames: Kral, Bernatsky, Bernacka
I am going to the Czech Republic in September and desparately searching for some information on my grandmother, Katherine Bernatsky Kral's family. She came to the U.S. in 1875 with her father Albert (Vojtech) Bernatsky (various spellings in his will and Katherine's marriage license shows Bernacka)from Bohemia. According to Albert's death certificate, his father's name was also Albert. I do not know in what region of the Czech Republic they lived and have been unable to find them on a passenger list. Katherine married my grandfather Thomas Kral in Minnesota 8-9-1875. Thomas came to the U.S.from Bohemia in 1872. They lived in the region south of Prague,in the villages of Vlkov and Hamr.

Surnames: Urbanek, Bernasek
To Kathy Inman: Your message interests me very much. On my
family tree, I have a sister to my ggfa named Josefa Bernasek. She, husband Josef and children came to Nebraska
in 1878. The History of Czechs in Nebraska by Rose Rosicky
said that they came from the village of Podebrady in Bohemia. I have not yet been able to locate it. Now I wonder if your Bernacek is the correct spelling. Since it
is the closest to my Bernasek (with a hacek over the s to
denote the sh sound). The c in Bernacek would be pronounced
ch. Bernatsky does not sound Czech--more like Polish or Russian. Your Kral forebears also interest me; A brother
of my grandfather married a Katherine Kral. Please email
me directly at dmurray@lightspeed.net Lucille
