John and Francis Czerkas
This picture was on the wall in my dad's living room and i believe it was taken of my grandparents, Iwan (jan) and Frances Czerkas. This picture was heavily touched up by hand. Am guessing it was taken maybe when he was about 30 and she was maybe in her early 20's. Possibly taken when they were still in Europe.

What they have on display is a altar tabernacle they built or had built for the then new Ukrainian Catholic church in Woodbine.

Czerkas Family Photo about 1920
family photo taken probably in the late 1920's or so. From the left, it looks like Steve Husak, my dad Steve Zerkis standing in back, then his sister Anne Sule, my grandmother, Frances Czerkas. In front of her is one of the two Husak girls, I'm guessing Lillian. Next to my grandmother in the back is my uncle Alex Husak, then my aunt Lottie (Clara) Husak. In front of her another daughter, (Vicky), my aunt Pearl Shapren, and my grandfather, Ivan Czerkas. I'm not sure of the spellings of the last names of my grandparents, I do know that when Frances came through immigration the records show her as using Czerkas. Have not found any Ellis Island records of my grandfather's arrival yet.

Our Blog

Hi my name is Eddie Runner
I have been collecting information on the Runner line and related family lines for quite a few years. I have over 4300 individuals on this website database already but I rely on your help to build the site bigger.

We are different because Runner-Genealogy.com is devoted to sharing copies of the Family research, photos, histories, stories, documents, Official records, Obituaries, Cemeteries, Churches, Family bible histories..

The Commercial Genealogy websites are not quite so detailed..

If we do not share the information we all have with our cousins, It could easily be lost forever!
