Introductory genealogical page
You can find here first of my sheepish results of my searching for my own ancestors.
How did it happen? … Once I came back from my work and from the post box dropped out a letter. It was necessary, that it came from abroad. First of all I thought, that someone has invited me to Zimbabwe ;-) what a surprise when I found out who had written to me - one of my namesakes from USA (Carol PONEC - Nemec). She looks for her relatives, who came from Czech Republic.
According to informations from a number of sources our ancestry was based by brothers from Spain. It happened in the time of Napoleon's wars. Even some books are said to exist, which describes these occurrences. I could not confirm it.
This theory is handing down from generation to generation verbally not only in my line of ancestors, but in others kin of Ponec´s which is not in our family too. Now is clear that this "settlement" was not in the Napoleon´s age (in this years there are 3 large family at least) but rather in Thirty Years' War or in civil commotion between 16th and 17th century.
I want to compile view of relationship of all PONEC´s - at the least in Czech republic (according to a list of the Department of Home Affairs there is 88 of them). Here you can find partial list of them, including family trees. If you want to insert, write me email.
If you are interested in anything or you have some helpful information, please don't hesitate and write me. Your reminders will not be forgotten.
