My grandfather Anton Jelinek was born in Dalj, Croatia, circa 1885. He was one of 23 musician children, his father's name Karl. He immigrated to NYC around 1908, live in NJ until his death 1967. One of his brothers, Ulrich, also lived in NJ, a sister Ivanka still lives near Miami, and another brother apparently lived in Sudbury, Canada. Vague indications are that the family originated in Bohemia.
