Hi. I'm your dad's cousin and my mom is your grandfather's sister. Here's the information I have on your grandfather's family. Your great-grandfather was Charles J Kudrna. He was born in Dickinson, ND on 11/12/1903. His parents were Aloys Kudrna and Josephine Vimara. Your grandfather's mom was Rose A Mihulka. She was born in Dickinson on 5/21/1903. Her parents were John Mihulka and Theresa Jileh (or it might be Jilen - I can't make out the handwriting). Rose had older sister's that were born in Europe; I don't know when they moved to ND. I have a note that John and Theresa acquired land in a "land rush" in White Russia and farmed it before moving to the states. Charles and Rose were married in Dickinson on 8/21/1922. Your grandfather was born in Dickinson, then they moved to Portland, OR and had three more children - Virginia (12/26/1930), Audrey, and William (Bill). Strangely enough, I knew your grandmother Mary more than I knew your grandfather. I hope you get this message - I see you originally posted in 2001.
