Searching for their roots

Chuck Kajer
Descendants of Felix Kolars and Barbara Simmer, who were married at St. Wenceslaus Church in New Prague in 1890, visited the city on Friday, May 28, to look for their roots. Their grandparents moved to  St. Paul and the six siblings were raised in the St. Louis, MO, area, and are now scattered throughout the country. They stopped to look at and learn a little bit about the church and community. By coincidence, when researching their grandparents’ home in St. Paul, they learned that it was now a bed-and-breakfast and they were able to stay the night in the home they remember visiting as children. From left to right are Tom Schmid, Judi Hickerson, Cindy Martin, Peggy Brown, Jeanne Angelos and Jim Schmid.
