Yes, it is written, "The RYNES Family, A History and Geneology". The Mellennium Edition 2000 has been published and a few copies are still available for purchase. Contact for more information.

Although we have over three thousand names in our data base, we are still looking for those we may have missed. If you are someone with the RYNES last name, or someone who has married someone with the RYNES last name or if you are a descendant of those marrying into the family, please also contact us.

At this point, we have identified what we believe are three RYNES families, each of which came to the United States in the mid to late 1800's. If you can help us fill in these family trees or discover how they may have been related back in Bohemia from which they came, we will be very grateful.
