The Kozilek family line took quite a bit of effort and the search was on. I was informed the family was probably Polish, Slavic or Czech. Again, without the help of a researcher, I would have nothing to contribute to this family. The researcher discovered that the Kozilek family was actually Czech. I sometimes joke that the family must have been in the witness protection program because I couldn't find any information on them! The information on this family comprises only on their European origins. It is my hope that the information gathered in this book will be useful to others who are interested in our family history. This could be a possible beginning. My wish is that this book may bring enjoyment to the members of the Kokkeler, Lammers, Balog and Kozilek families.
