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 

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
