Konieczny Reunion



On August 12, 2000, the descendants of Frank and Sophia Konieczny got together at the home place for a family reunion.  Over a hundred people drifted in and out during the course of the day, and others were unable to attend.  Most also were able to spell and pronounce "konieczny," a feat in itself for 99% of the English speaking world.  Here are some of the pictures I took at the event.  If you are looking for more, feel free to e-mail me and I'll be glad to tell you what all I have and share them with you.  

All of the pictures here on this page are thumbnails.  Click on the picture to open the regular size image.  Caution: some of them are large (in the 50-100K range) and so may take a minute or so to open if you have a slow connection.

My apologies to anyone I've left out.  I tried to get everyone, but given the size of the group, that was not always possible. 

The Children of Frank Konieczny and Sophia Haider and their spouses are:

  • Tom Konieczny and Virginia
  • Margaret Konieczny (d. 1981) and Fred Rohland (d. 1996)
  • Leon Konieczny (d. 1936)
  • Agnes Konieczny and Otto Rohland (d. 1990)
  • Frank Konieczny and Phyllis Ammentorp
  • Stanley Konieczny and Tootie Collar
  • George Konieczny and Joanne Szczech
