Dear Zara: The John Wachal that I am related to was born May 03, 1825 and married Catherine Ruzek. They had five children: Thomas, Adam, Peter, George and (John: born 1840 in Galacia, Austria also known as Poland) My family line comes from John who married Theresa Szobek in 1864. Does any of these names coincide with your family tree? Wouldn't it be nice to fill in some gaps! Please let me know of any other Wachal names that you have as I also have some that I cannot fit anywhere. Thanks.
