I have had a major breakthrough of one of my brickwalls. My gr-grandfather was John Hanus who settled in Belmont Co. Ohio. I now have, after many years, his birth village and parents with the help of a researcher. Jan Hanus, born July 11, 1854 in the village of Velvary to parents: Frantisek Hanus and Marie Teprova. Anyone interested in these names? I do have more names and hope soon to have names of siblings and of my gr-grandmother.

I am trying to locate any information about this family. I have a World War Two Draft Registration record of an August WONDRACK, born August 24, 1884 in Bohemia. He lived in NY until approximately 1943 when he moved to San Francisco. I have been unable, to this point, to find any other information about him. There are no records, to date, regarding his ever living in SF for any prolonged amount of time. I have checked for a passenger list or any documentation and can only find him in a few NY City directories. There is no record located at this point that says where in Bohemia he was from. HELP, please!!!!!
