My name is Daniel Kisha, and have a strong feeling we are related. I have
heard the surname Lichtwar mentioned in the family, but at the moment I
can't remember where and how.
I was born and raised in Johnstown, PA, and at the moment I am in Martin,
I looked at my family tree, and there you were. Your mother was Judith
Lichtwar. Your mother was the daughter of Helen Kisha, my fathers sister.
As for the Surname Lichtwar, we will need to find the town in Slovakia to
start looking. Ask Aunt Helen Kisha Sedlack in Johnstown, PA if she has any
idea where he came from. Maybe Eleanor Rose knows something of his origins.
Please send me your genealogy information and what you know about your
mother and father. I have a large family tree on the family. If you have a
genealogy program, I will email you the information.
