You are correct in your assumption that he came from Tabor SW of Ljubljana. My mother who was born in Tabor still owns the the family home that my great grandfather Jakob built.
Interestingly the name Sorec is actually Austrian in its origin not Italian. I believe it is a slovenia version of the german name Schwartz as the pronounciation is very similar.
Thank you for your explanation regarding the previous dates that he was in the USA....now it makes sense why i couldnt find any other arrival information on him. Mind you one would think that he would have arrived in Ellis Island sometime in 1902 but there is no record. There is a jakob Sorc who arrived in 1902 but his age on arrival is listed as 34 and his town of origin is Krain not Tabor.
Yes, I have also searched for the person Kartelic that he was visitng to no avail. But i noticed something very interesting quite by accident whilst looking at the passenger record on my great grandfathers arrival in NY on 28 July 1906. my grandfather wasnt the only passagenger who listed George Kartelic as the person they were visiting.
Passengers Johann Penko and Franz Lenarcic both listed as Croations were also "visiting" Georg K of Sunnyside Utah
Posted to the Utah board but no replies as yet
The thing I regret the most is that my grandfather knew more details about his father and what happened to him but no one ever bothered to ask him and that information died with him many years ago.
Back to a dead end but I thank you very much Robert for your help and suggestions
