Gina, Found this site by accident.I'm Jim Faix, also from Pennsylvania and living in Florida now.Most of my family is from the McKeesport area.My brothers are Paul J. (now in St. Louis, MO), Richard J. (now in Durham, NH) and Jeffrey J. Faix (in McKeesport).My father is Arthrur J. Faix of McKeesport.He had a sister Bertha Faix Slobodnick (deceased 1999) and a brother William of Clairton, PA.My grandfather was James Faix (deceased 1965).I think his father was Jacob P. Faix (deceased 1943).
My aunt did some research into the family name and I have some copies of documents from Czeckoslovakia, family crest, some old obituarys, etc.
Other spellings of our family name have been Feix, and Foix.Some of the birth/death records my aunt has found go back to the 1600's.
