I will retain the Vinduska vs. Wintuska forum as it will be of interest to the origional poster (read to end of post). Hi, Rebecca, your greatgrandfather Albert and my grandfather William were brothers.Both were sons of Anton who came over on the boat with his brother Joseph and their father Jacob.Jakub as he spelled it, was the son of Vojtech Vinduska and Rozalie Kank(ova).He listed his occupation as a weaver, however I have heard that he was the tailor for the King of Austria.Jakub came from the town of Zechov and his wife the widow of a man named Krch, her maiden name of Cech, was from Prachnany.They first came to Philadelphia, then on to a Cezch comunity in Chichago, and then to Florence Ks. where they bought land from the Santa Fe Railroad near Pilsen. My mother who passed away last July was heavily into genealogy and did a great deal of research on her family but only the direct decendents on my fathers side.I am attempting to finish what she had done and make it available for all the family members who would like to have it either in print or computer format.Your fathers aunt Margaret had kept quite a bit of information on butchers paper and I am copying it into Family Tree Maker and adding whatever else I can find. Yesterday, 01-05-2002, Margaret mentioned that a German man who lived in the vacinity always called us Wintuska, probably because the Germans had no letter V?Our family came from that region that had shifting boarders and the people did mix with Germans, Austrians, Poles, etc. As a side note to my last post, I did find two Vinduska names that I can't tie into our tree.A Pavel Vinduska in Fort Myers, Fl. and a Vladimir in Albany, NY.Otherwise we are all related as decendants of Jakub and Frantiska.
