Czech Republic Genealogy Queries for 1997

 

I live in Cincinnati, OH, but I came here from New York. My gf/gm and most of their children lived around BOHEMIA, NY, Sayville, NY. In some sort of family feud my gf and his brothers Joseph didn't speak from about 1925 until1956 -- certainly would love to get hold of that story! By the way Zirovnice is a castle town, and there is a story that has been told through the generations that we were the crested family and one of the heirs to the original family (an ancestor of mine) gave away the crest for a keg of whiskey!!!Frka100@aol.com 3 Aug 1997

GRANOUTA / GRANAT / GENDRASAK / JUDIASAK / OKARMUS -I am looking for Ignac GRANOUTA, also known when he came to this country as James GRANAT. He was born in 1881 in Pekelnik, Czechoslovakia. He came to this country about 1907. Landed in New York. His parent were Andreas GRANOUTA or GRANAT and his mother's maiden name wasKatrina GENDRASAK or JUDIASAK. They stayed in Czechoslovakia. At the time he came over I believe it was referred to as Austria - Hungary. Ignac's sister came to this country in 1909. Her name on arrival to this country was Rosalia GRANAT.

Ignac GRANAT married Caroline OKARMUS; she came over about 1905. They were married in the United States after her arrival. Their first child was born in Smock, Fayette County, Pennsylvania in 1906. Caroline died shortly after 1913, but I have no idea as to where she died or is buried.

My main concern is his family in Pekelnik, Czech. Also it is possible Caroline OKARMUS came from Orava. Looking on a map I noticed there is a Moravia, Austria - Hungary. Thank you for any help you can give me John and Beverly Hurni 30 Jun 1997

KUBRICHT / CHALOUPKA / KOVARIKOVA -Looking for information on the KUBRICHT family. Rev./Dr. Bohumil KUBRICHT born 14 Feb 1864 in Praha, Bohemia. His father was Mujotve Vaclav KUBRICHT born 1831 and died 28 Dec 1882 in Praha according to family Bible. I believe this family to originally came from Neumetely, Bohemia (just outside of Praha). Vaclav was married to Anna Ruzena CHALOUPKA and possibly someone else. The family Bible say that Vaclav father was Meteje and his father served in the war in 1776. If I am reading the Bible correctly Meteje's mother is Lidmila KOVARIKOVA. The Bible is written in English and Czech and is hard to read. I believe this name to be unusual.
