Re: Koci Relatives ????
My wife's name is Georgina Krall Traut and we were both born in Chicago. Her mother's name was Albena Prezell Krall and she had two sisters, Flavia Prezell Prucha and Dolores Prezell Kubes. Flavia was married to Frank Prucha and they lived in Lyons near the river and Frank's parents lived next door. We do know that Frank and Flavia took some trips back to the old country but we do not know what, if anything, they accomplished about finding relatives.
We were married in St. Barbara Catholic Church in Brookfield on 12/26/1959 and the Koci family was at the wedding and reception at The Spinning Wheel Restaurant in Hinsdale.
My wife has a picture of Camille's brother Ludvik pushing my wife in a baby carriage on 21st Place. Lud was a big deal with Penske Transportation. Old Lud developed the inside of the Pop-up Toaster for Sunbeam.
We remember Lud and Elsi's home in Riverside before they moved out to Oakbrook Terrace.
The two of us leave on 9/15 for Slovenia and Czech Republic for Genealogy research on the Prezell, Prucha, Kral (Krall), Koci, Schubert, Simenc and Sturgel Families.
After our return I will send you any information I am able to accumulate.
Please send me a return E-mail when you get this message.
