I have searched for Talanda's all my life.Until 1997, when I used an internet search, I believed the name Talanda died with my father.
Since then, I have had the enormous joy of discovering more ... and more Talanda's.
I was born in Canada.My father, Stanislaw Talanda emigrated here after the war.He was born in Szczebreszyn, Poland.
At the moment, I have learned of several other Talanda families, who's origins go back to Szczebreszyn.They live in the USA, England, France, Argentina, and Poland.In fact, at Easter of this year I discovered I have a "cousin" living in the same citywhere I live.She came here from Warsaw 17 years ago and we are currently trying to find out exactly how we are related.
I have also been in touch with Talanda's in the Czech Republic and know the name Josef is in their family tree, just as it exists in our family tree.The Czech Talanda's can trace their roots to the mid 1600's.We are not sure if we are related ... but there certainly seems to be a possibility.One of the Czech Talanda's now lives in New York City and we stay in touch.
I am thrilled to learn of your existance and will be happy to send you any information I have.
Thank you for contacting me.
