You refer to a townNAGY LAKcould it be Nadlak? I have also found it spelled MADLAK in the Ellis Island searches.Also MagylakandNagylak
My mother and grandfather came from Nadlak in 1913 and we are unable to locate them because -- probably -- of mispelling.We believe they came on the Pretoria out of Hamburg.Mother was 16.
Their names wereTeodora Faur and Pavel Tanais. We, of course, did not pay much attention to their descriptions of their coming to USA.We have tried several permutations of the spellings -- without luck.
