About Dobra Voda & Kúklov to Sterling MI
Prohaska Family Album

Trees Without Roots Fall Over.
 This family album & website is dedicated to the fourteen children of Frank and Julia  Prohaska who have provided us with strong roots.  Family members were invited to share via  a branch contact and this book is the result of those who responded. Please forgive me if  we were unable to contact you, and also for any errors, omissions, typographical errors,  etc. The family album consists of 20 chapters found under STORIES under the PEOPLE TAB at  the top of this website. Under STORIES, just click the links in each chapter from 00, the  introduction, through each of the fourteen children, chapters 1 to 14 as well as  additional family history chapters. Be sure to read pages 25-29 of the introduction  (chapter 00),click on the link to Frank and Julia, memories by Stefan Davidek.

Also on this website are the ancestors of Frank and Julia, found in the Catholic Church of  Slovakia baptismal records microfilmed by the church of the Latter Day Saints. These  ancestors can be found by clicking Tree or Ancestors under the VIEW tab. Julia's family  records can be traced back to the 1797 marriage of her great grandparents in Kuklov so at  this point no connection to Alphonso Múcha born in 1860 in Moravia. Frank's parents and  grandparents of Dobra Voda are also shown when clicking the VIEW and TREE tabs but his  great grandparents still being researched.

This website is created in lieu of constantly updating the paper album and creating paper  or cd copies for multiple viewers. Previously there was duplicate entry involved in  updating the family tree diagram and also updating the text of the family album with no  easy way to share updates with a large number of people. With online access to this  website the process is greatly simplified, and can be viewed readily by any family member  or multiple members at the same time.

Now with only one entry of an individual they are automatically included in tree diagrams  and text reports. See Tree or Reports under the View tab above, should you wish to see a  text view or the family tree for a particular ancestor. The only tricky part is one needs  to know their birth name, so for example to create a report on my grandmother, Helen  Gulvas, one needs to find Helen Prohaska (birth name) in the drop down box. Likewise if  creating a tree or report for my aunt, Helen Prohaska, one needs to use the drop down box  for Helen Rokosz, her maiden name. If you don't know their maiden name, you can tree up or  down from individual whose names you do know. This website includes step children and  adopted children as direct descendants with a note next to their birth information.

This website is just a repository, not a search engine and is private, only available to  those who are invited and it will not ask you to join anything or display ads. Links are  provided as well as information about the sources of data records should you wish to try  some ancestry searches on your own. Beware, it can be addictive hunting for dead  relatives.

Be sure to check out the photos (enlarge for better viewing), and the birthdays and  anniversaries, listed under events in the PEOPLE tab above (either in list form or as a  calendar). Also replacing the index of individuals is a list of names, seen in the name- index under the PEOPLE table above. With the names index, you can easily look up any  Prohaskas, etc to see if and how related they are related to you.

Please let me know if you have any additions, changes, photos or questions.

Warm Regards,

K Rokosz
