Wow! I'm so delighted to get such a great response to my last message! Hello again, Ann! Malcom and Gail, it's nice to hear from you! Thank you for offering to do look ups. I've asked Ann to do a few for me but perhaps I'll "spread the wealth" and ask each of you a few questions, as well. I found a web page that had some very interesting genealogical information. The address is-http://www.geocities.com/Heartland/Hollow/8143/genealogy/yaple.txtI was always under the impression that Yeaple/Yaple was a Dutch name, however I've learned that our ancestors originated in Zinnwald, Bohemia, which would make us of Czechoslovakian descent. This would explain why I could never find our name listed in any of the Dutch web pages! How did you manage to get copies of "The Yaple Family in America"? Is there a family organization or newsletter? If so, how might I, and other Yeaple/Yaple family members, get on a mailing list?
