his wife, Anna Jakes was born in Chicago in
1880 and died in 1959. My father, William J.
Duda was born in Chicago 9/28/1919. I have

my ancestors. Only my grandfather was born
in Bohemia and the rest in Chicago. As far
as I know the rest of the family was and
might still be in Czechoslovakia. Of my
grandfather and down, only myself and two
brothers are left. None of us can find
