Please note that my memorials are my relatives, with the exception of one or two. If you are a closer relative to anyone I have on here, such as great granddaughter, etc, I will be happy to transfer the memorial to you as long as it isn't my direct ancestor.

I don't mean to sound hateful, but I have traveled extensively in the U.S. and Europe to research my lines. I've also DNA tested my family and some cousins in the pursuit of finding remote connections.
I've been interested in my genealogy since I was a child. My father was the family historian, and I have taken over where he left off. Only this time DNA is part of my research.
Although my father's grandparents came over from Bohemia in 1881, his mother's maternal line, and all my mother's lines were here in colonial times. So, one part of me is in only a 3rd generation American, and the other part is an 11th generation.
My grandfather Frank Kruta was adopted by his stepfather James Kruta. His biological father remains unknown until a Y-DNA match is found.
My father's lines are the Braums, and Zemans who originated in Bohemia and immigrated through Ellis Island around 1876. They went to Chicago, Nebraska, and Oklahoma.
His maternal lines are the Yagers and Velmans (Veulemans) from Missouri via Germany and East Flanders, the Barlows from the Germanna Colony in Virginia, and the Singletons and Siberts from Kentucky, Indiana, and Missouri, and Yoakums and Keeneys from West VA. Dwight Yoakam is a 7th cousin
My mother's maternal lines are the Greenes, Bruners, Tarrants, McCurrys, Russells, G'Fellers, Hubers/Hoovers (Amish/Mennonite), Mercers, Taylors, Browns, Painters from Greene County, TN. There's a 250 year history back there since that's where my grandmother was born. Also, the Watkins from Sullivan County, TN, the Tarrants and Manloves from Dover, Delaware. We share a common Manlove ancestor with the branch who married into the du Pont (chemical company) line, and the Allisons from Maryland.
Her paternal lines are the Burns from Scotland to Pennsylvania, the Smiths from Tennessee, and the Cloyds and O'Banions from Kentucky.

|Genealogy Forever||Ancestors from Bohemia|
I have noticed your marvelous endeavors concerning your research concerning the Bruner, Tarrant, etc., and then noticed ob Find A Grave you mentioning having ancestors from Bohemia. So I was wondering if you could give me give me counseling or any information as to how to go about research for Bohemia. As my maternal grandparents came from Bohemia and I have come to a blank after locating their passenger list as they arrived in United States in 1904 in New York, then went to Lebanon, PA., then to Chicago, where my mother was born in 1910 (Josephine Kulisek, dau. of Joseph & Kristina); from there to relocated to Spring Lake, Itasca, Minnesota.
Well any advice or help you may provide would be greatly appreciated.
With forever love and eternal gratitude,

This is your Yeager cousin down here in Alabama formerly of the Great State of TEXAS. I come from the Vance Yeager line, younger brother to your ancestor, and I noticed he is not connected with his family on here. His Find A Grave# is 90798057. If you would link him to his father and mother I would appreciate it. Have a wonderful Day.

Thanks in advance...

Good Luck tracking down the siblings,etc.
|Sarah Mitchell||Mary D Pippin|
I came upon this name as I did my biological ancestry research. This appears to be a sister to my biological mother. What is your connection? I am searching for information as I was adopted as an infant.
|Catherine Aguilar||RE: O'Banion|
Thanks for the info! Actually Helen's maiden name was Collins but my great grandfather Archie is the O'banion! So awesome to find distant relatives through websites like find a grave.
