I just stumbled upon this site and it's amazing. I am the grand-daughter of Clara Tretina Zak. My mother was Gertrude Zak. Are we related?

From Allan Krippner's daughter
Ms. Gallagher,

I am here in Orange County, California looking at your wonderful pictures and family tree details with my father, Allan Krippner (son of Henry Krippner and Marie Kotnour Krippner). Thank you so much for adding these items to the database for us to enjoy!

My dad says thank you also, and wants to encourage you in your efforts. Please email me at or my dad at

Best to you,
Linda Krippner

Vaclav (James) Krippner
Hello, Jean. I am a History Professor named James Krippner. A few nights ago I googled myself out of curiosity and found this site. Vaclav Krippner was my great grandfather and I was named after him. My aunt Vivien (daughter of Ed Krippner) is in the photo and she identified just about everyone. If you wish to contact me my e-mail is, I'd be happy to give you my aunt's e-mail if you would like to be in touch. Thanks for the lovely photo, Jim Krippner.

What a picture! Jean Gallagher must indeed be from one of Tom's family because no one else would have known my cousin Joan's middle name--we only called her "Joannie"! Quite a picture of my Dad in the left corner, with his tie pulled open! I think I figured out all the people, even guessed about the children. I think that is my mother holding me next to Sr. Bea and Grandma. (I was born in 1932, so probably less than a year old on the picture.) That is truly an amazing picture, all of the aunts and uncles and cousins except for the five youngest cousins who hadn't made their appearance yet: George, Ralph, Gerry, Lorraine and Alan. Do let me know if Jim finds out anything about who Jean Gallagher is.

RE: Thank You!
Hi-You know, I should be able to remember what that get-together would have been, but I can't. (The mind is the first thing to go!). I will ask Mom. She has had a good time helping with the family tree research. Contact me at Good to hear from you.

Dear Jean Marie-I just found this wonderful story and pictures you posted about your father. We are cousins, although I don't believe we ever met. I am Roman and Dolores' daughter. My mom really enjoyed hearing the story and seeing the pictures.
