Pospisil, Josef & wife Marie (Pokorny)

Posted In

Hi All,

Its been awhile since I’ve done any family research. Last month, my uncle told me he received some information and mailed it to me. So here I am searching for long lost family. I seem to more luck finding female ancestors than male. Part of the problem is Josef which happens to be the name of a lot of my male ancestors. was an extremely popular name and the ancestors’ name I’m searching for (Pospisil), I was told, is as common as Smith. So there’s that.

My great-great grandfather was named Josef Pospisil, his wife’s name was Marie Pokorny. Her father’s name was also Josef (see what I mean) her brother’s name was Johann, Jan or John. Anyway, I’m trying to find more info on my great-great-great-grandfather. I don’t even know what his name was.



Hello. So, a little more information is needed. My 2nd Great Grandfather was Frank Pokorny. However I don’t have a Marie with a father Josef. Do you know where and when they lived?
