I know my father’s family was originally from PA and his cousins still live there. His cousin Don Purse died last year and I don’t know the others. My Father was Robert Frank Purse (b 1927 d 1994) he was married to my mother Gertrude Roberta (Black) Purse. My father’s parents were William Frank Purse and Julia Ann (Rudy). I heard that my family originated from Bohemia and Austria and always thought my grandmother Julia was the one from Bohemia, but it seems looking on this site that it is more likely that it was my grandfather who emigrated from there.
