- Hi, Matt
My great aunt Angela never married. Actually her father was a
Roznovak who married Anna Cuba (my great grandparents), but they
divorced, and Anna took back her maiden name. My grandmother, Lydia
and her sister Angela, also went by their mother's maiden name of
Cuba. Of course my grandmother took my grandfather's name (Jansa)
when she married.
