In Reply to: Novotny's from Altoona, Pa by Frances Petock of 183

Hello. I'm Jeff Novotny. I grew up in Cassandra, PA which is very near Lilly, PA. My father Duane Novotny is from Portage, PA as well as my grandfather Stephen Novotny. I was surprised to find your listing as I have been interested in tracing my family but never got around to it. I have relatives in Lilly and Ebensburg areas also. I am curious to find out if a story about my name is true. I was told that a relative many years ago was in the German Army and went AWOL from a war. He moved to Czechoslovakia with a family and assumed their name, Novotny. If you are tacing our family name, maybe you could let me know if that is true. Thanks!!
