Hi, I am the great granddaughter of Jacob Janda, his father was also Jacob, mother's name unknown. They settled in Chicago after coming over from Bohemia. I have recently found that Jacob Sr. had a brother named John from Pilsen.John married Anna Title, they also settled in Chicago, Ill. They had 10 children, two of which are priests, Valerian John and Charles A. Janda. Valerian and Charles have a niece named Pauline Burton and a nephew named Rev. Adelbert Janda .Adelbert was born in Lisle Ill.I have also come across a Joseph Janda from Texas, I think they may be a connection with my family.Is any of this helpful with the Janda family you are searching?
