I appreciate you taking the time to post a message on my GenForum query.
Yes!I would be most appreciative of the address for the complete copy of the story by Frank Dobry. I actually read a bit he wrote in the Butler County H.S. bulletin and cannot find how to contact him.I'm trying to find someone with old photos of Apolina (Julia, right?),Anna and Anton.I have a portrait of Julia when she married Frank Sysa (in Czech it was Sysa). If you want a copy, I'll send it to you. I still have about 50 portraits to identify so any help would be great.There are also a bunch of kids that might be your family.If you can help me out with any of this, I'll be happy to pay expenses.
Also, Tomas came over the same year as Magdelina and Josef.Joseph A. Dobry (their son) stayed for a time with brother Vaclac and then when he was 17, with Franticek Semrad who I think is Magdelina's brother.Do you know if Frank Dobry's info includes Josef's father and mother's names?I do know Tomas's father was Josef but not sure if it's THAT Josef. I cannot find info on Tomas' mother's name.
I probably have a lot of photos I could send you of your side of the family. Interested?
Please send me a private message and I'll send you my address. Thanks again. Terri
