Bio and Links
I am a native of Clark county, Wisconsin where I have lived most of my life. I have been very interested in genealogy and local history since I was a boy. I grew up in the rural Neillsville area and married a native of the Withee area so that I have come to know both ends of the county and the area between fairly well.
Surnames I am interested in: Jilek (from Kuklik, Moravia); Prokop from Klinovice, Bohemia and settled in Chicago; Toellner and Strebing from Mecklenburg, Germany and settled in Lyons, Cook county, Illinois area; Struensee from Wittstock, Brandenburg, Germany and settled in Winnebago county, Wisconsin; Yarrington, Young (originally Jung) and Welty that settled in Bureau county, Illinois; also Darwood and Hewitt respectively from villages of Haddenham and Cottenham in Cambridgeshire, England.
On my wife's side: Bush and Ripp that settled in Jackson county, Wisconsin area; Myllykangas (shortened to Kangas) from Ahtari, Finland area; Lehtonen / Huuhanaho from Multia, Finland area; Makinen (changed to Hill in the U.P.). All of these Finnish families settled either in DeKalb, Illinois or the U.P. of Michigan first, then came to the Owen-Withee area here in Clark county, Wisconsin.

Thanks so much for the info about Hilja, I was given the index and photos for that cemetery from the Range Genealogical Society, I did find a bit more about her and John. I love searching the Finnish records, my mothers family was from Finland.

RE: Frantiska Dvorak
Kevin, I always enjoy "visiting with others" on family quests. I don't have any of the sites that cost to use, but was wondering where you found the site from Kuklik, Moravia? That was where some of my family came from also and from other places over there. Shinn, was Sin over there with the "swish" for sh or ch! I have a friend whose mother was married first to and Jilek then a Brzon, if I'm not mistaken, from the family north of Dubois. I know her family is buried at the Bohemian Cemetery. Luella

Kevin, Welcome to the site! In a round about way I'm related to her. She was my aunts grandmother, her mother was Agnes "Lottie" Vetrovsky, and we are related on the Shinn side. Did you notice the new spelling Jilek, the family lived about 4 miles north of DuBois, NE. I hope you find a lot, I try to link family whenever I can. Luella
