Steven's father was Joseph Vranik who later changed the spelling to Wranik. Steven was first generation born in USA. Joseph, his father, was a co-founder of the St. Joseph's church in Cudahy, WI These Vranik's are from today's Lysa pod Makytou, Slovakia (originally part of Upper Hungary, known as Lissza, Hungary). Most settled in the Milwaukee Co. of WI when they immigrated to the states. My connection is via my grandfather was the baby brother of Joseph.
