Dear Holly:
Sorry,I don't know anything about the names you mentioned
but I noticed that you have their date of birth and place.
The three essentials for beginning research are those items
If you have just a name and date but no location it is impossible to begin.The only info I had about the dad were
those three items and I spent six months on the internet
exchanging e-mails and learned not one thing more of him.
The internet is a fine place to meet people but zero for
info.Here is my experience.While browsing I came across a
Czech website that advertised their research company for
$15.00 an hour.To shorten the story,I contracted with them
and,although it took four months,they sent me ten pages of
data going back to 1800.Now,with this info as a guide,my
good neighbor who purchased fifteen of the Broderbund Co.
disks,went back to 1610.So,now I have a straight line
family tree from 1610 to the present.The Czech Co. is in
Prague and they charged me $215.00 and it was well worth it.
If this reaches you ,please acknowlege receipt,and I will
send you the info.God love you and yours.

Surnames: Yedlicka-Pokarney
My paternal grandmother, Elsie Juanita Yedlicka Bonawitz, was the child of James and Marie Yedlicka, who immigrated to the US from Bohemia with the Pokarney family. In fact, my oldest great aunt, Barbara, was born before the family left Bohemia and later married one of the Pokarney boys. I'm sorry, but I don't know which one.

I'd love to know more about the Pokarney family as well as any information you have about the Yedlicka family. My cousins Jim and Edward currently own the original Pokarney homestead. James lives in the old Pokarney home.

Dear Jack,

Barbara Yedlicka married my great-grandfather, Frank Henry Pokarney. I remember my great-grandmother, Barbara, from visits to Great Falls, MT, when I was very young. Frank died in 1955, but Grandma Barbara lived until 1969. I have a great family photo of the Pokarney family, when Grandpa Frank was a young man, with his parents and siblings all together. I also have Frank and Barbara's wedding photo, as well as a photo of my father, George, as a baby, with his paternal great grandparents, who must be Joseph and Meri (Maria?) Pokarney.

I remember my paternal grandmother, Gladys, telling me that the Pokarney family had emigrated from Bohemia to Pennsylvania, eventually ending up in Montana. I only knew about them living in Great Falls, MT.

There must be quite a large number of Pokarneys around now, as Frank was one of ten children, though only three of them were male. I don't know much at all about the Yedlicka side of our family. Hope this helps.

I have a Margaret (Mag) Pokarney who came from Fromberg, Carbon County MT and married Clarence Swallow. They lived in Thermopolis Wyoming in and had two children in the early 1900s: Clarence and Margaret.
Does this fit your Pokarney family?

Hi, Carol, I found a note from a cousin, his grandmother was Emma (Sally) Pokarney who married John Buzzetti. I can't find his dad's name, but in an e-mail he mentioned a cousin Margaret Swallow who recently passed away.This e-mail was 12/99 so it's been a while. So it looks like we have a connection. Let me know what you have & I'll dig a little deeper.
Thanks Holly

Margaret Swallow Scott was my grandmother and she did pass away in 1999.
Her parents were Frank Edward "Bud" Swallow and Margretta Harriet Pokarney. What do you think?
