"More Family"

This is Yvonne Vranes. Her brother found my website, and wanted to know if there was any familial ties. With a name like "Vranes" we all are related somehow! The family tree only goes back to my husband's great grandfather "George" when he showed up at Ellis Island having traveled from Yugoslavia via Austria. We believe the name "Vranes" was originally "Vranesh", but it got 'lost in translation' at Ellis Island. The interest thing is, Yvonne's side of the family pronounces "Vranes" like "Vran-es", while we say it like "Vraines". Yvonne lives in Phoenix so I invited her out to the show. When I first saw her, I couldn't believe the family resemblance to my husband's sister, Sara. We are most definitely related!
