I hope you are still veiwing your web site. I am doing some Genealogy for Steve Pomranka, son of Clarence Albert and grandson of Frederick William and Elizabeth. I was able to locate all 9 children through census records but no further info. My name is Priscilla Johnson and padjopie@msn.com Russenda Lyon is a friend letting me use her ancestry web site. Would you be willing to share information? I would like to put a book together for Steve's birthday. His mother is still alive at 95. Interested in the Reichel line too. No info on them. PJ
