Full Circle 89

This is another photo that found it’s way home after an online search.  A message was left on the blog.

Laporte Emma Bohuslavicky

Photo Number 236

On the back of this card it has this writing.  "Does she look like a farm girl, her name is Emma Bohuslavicky."

I am pretty sure this is a picture of my Great-Great Grandmother (How many Emma Bohuslavicky's can there be in Texas?). I am related to her through Anna, her youngest. Thank you for posting this!

I offered to mail the photo…after I finally found it…my filing system leaves a lot to be desired.

It would be pretty cool to have the picture.  My Grandfather on that side of the family passed away earlier this year, so his belongings are being divided up amongst the family.  My also deceased grandmother was very into genealogy, so I was looking through her files and decided to run some of the names through google to see what I could come up with, which is how I came across this photo.

It would be great if I could have the picture to include in her files.  I think I will likely be in charge of her files and the family genealogy from now on, so it would be nice to add something.

Hi Connie,

Just wanted to let you know I received the picture a couple days ago.

I will check the old files my grandmother made, see if I can come up with anything interesting about her to write up.

Thanks again.


If James sends along  more information I can always add it.

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. People like to search names and it does bring a lot of successful results, this one especially. I had a great grandfather who moved to the Murray area and his brother stayed in the Burlington, Iowa area. I get so many questions about my name and relatives that are from the Eastern Iowa family. I haven't a clue about that family except they are also everywhere. In fact there is a man in the Chicago area that has my same exact name but only one book review that he wrote that lets me know that he exists.

  2. Happy that the photo will be appreciated.

  3. Well, you are really on a roll now! Two Full Circles in a row. Thought I didn't remember that photo, and it turns out I was right...before my time. You have been at this a long time, and the results are just now starting to multiply.

  4. :) I love that "How many Emma Bohuslavicky's can there be in Texas?"
