Subject: new memberI am a new member to Texas Czechs. My name is Joyce Janicek. I am Czech by marriage only! But I have done a lot of genealogy on my own family (Boston Irish) and decided I was at a point where I could get interested in my husband's family.I have asked around the family and found that the Janicek family has been researched quite a bit. My husbands parents, however were not aware of any research on the name of his mother: Marak. My father in law's mother, Marie (Mary) was the daugthter of Thomas Marak, who's father, Frank, was one of the first settlers of Dubina and then founded Marak (near Cameron). Three of Frank Marak's sons settled in Marak, and another three went to West. I can already see where we are going to end up related to a third of Dubina, a third of Marak, and a third of West, Texas!I'd love to hear from any and all Czechs who might have a link to the family.
