- I inherited a wonderful little painting from my Dad when he died. It is of a cottage along a river near VEJVANOV (Bohemia) where my paternal great-grand parents lived. A label on the back indicates the painting is by Frank DIVIS and was done in September, 1932. I don't think there is any blood connection between my family and Mr Divis, but I would really like to find out more about him. Any leads would be appreciated.

- I am a Divis and there are two other Divis researchers that I know of who
are trying to tie the Divis families together. All of us have several Frank
Divis ancestors. In fact I have a grandmother who married a Frank Divis and
her sister married another Frank Divis, and I still dont know if they were
at all related, Please send me a photo of the picture to boiirose at
gmail.com . Can you tell me when they emmigrated to the US and what states
your family lived in so I could figure out which of us might be a more
direct line. I had Divis relatives in Milin just across the main road
Pilsen to Prague from Vejvanov. All of the Divis families as far as I've
been able to tell cme from this region.
