Mark Strelok I've been researching my grandmother's side of the family and stumbled upon this page. Her father was Josef/Josephus Svancarek (shortened to Svenk as seen in the posted photograph). However, I've been unable to piece together where he fits in with the rest of the Svancareks.

He married Mary Lehuta and emigrated to the United States. He had two sisters; Augustina who married Josef Dusik and Anna who married John/Jerry Janco (if anyone wants info on them, please ask).

I also discovered this: [external link] which describes the descendants of Karol Svancarek, though I believe the poster was in error regarding Josef Svancarek since this Ellis Island document (line 18 of original manuscript):

[external link]

says his fare was paid by Josef Dusik, his brother-and-law, which matches up to my findings. Since my findings (as well as my grandmother's memory!) say Josef married Mary Lehuta rather than Anna Hudkova, I am fairy confident the Yahoo groups poster made a mistake somewhere in his research.

Getting to the point, I was hoping somebody could confirm if the parents of Josef Svancarek (1898-1982) were Karol Svancarek and Anna Duzekova as in the Yahoo groups posting or, if otherwise, point me in the right direction.

Thanks in advance
