He was married to Gisela Polz Edle von Ruttersheim. Their son, Max, was my father. We lived in northern Italy. My borthers' names are Henry and John. My mother, Trude, still lives there.

I'm not really sure where to start on this search. My father's name was Stephen Baronak and he immigrated to the states back in the 20's when he was 16. I have his passport, which of course is in Czech, I believe, but there is no one left who can translate it. Perhaps if that could be done it would be extremely helpful. Unfortunately, Dad passed away a few years ago, but even when alive talked very little about his life in Czech., so have little information to go on.
