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?
