      Susan,

      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.

      Myrna

      Search Jaluvka, Stavinoha, Olsovsky.
