- Oct 4, 2002Susan,
Thank you for the info.
Do you know who the parents were for J.F. Ignatz Jalufka?
I think the town your thinking of is Mnisi. That is where my branch of
Jaluvka's were from in Moravia.
You have sure been a big help to a lot of people. I read all your posts.
Thanks for sharing.
Search Jaluvka, Stavinoha, Olsovsky.
