Hi- I'm new to this forum and am hoping that someone might be able to help me. I'm working on my family genealogy. My stepfather's surname is Spurney. I can trace his father's information in the 1920 U.S. Census but have been unable to find any information on the name Spurney to research further. The grandfather immigrated to the U.S. in 1913, born in Bohemia, surname Spurney. In talking to my stepfather, he said that he's sure that the name Spurney was changed from his original name in Bohemia. Can someone help me to find what the original name might have been for Spurney? Also, any assistance with a surname of Bielas, born in Mahren would be most appreciated. Thank you in advance for any assistance.
