The last name is definitely difficult.The only document I have from Nova Bystrica, Slovakia, Nitra Region, is the birth certificate for my aunt.Her parents were married before they came to the US.The certificate has their names as:Martin Chmurciork and her mother was Evor Pokrivka.This was in Feb. 1905 - before Martin left, I again am assuming. I just looked up the translation you did for me - it was back in 2005 - looks like I haven't made much headway.The mother's last name had 2 names:Pokrivka-Zemjancin.
So the Marcin Chmielowicz coming to the US in 1905 is probably the wrong person?Well, I'll just have to keep searching - this was the 1st time something came up close enough worth posting.
Yes, he lived till 1959 - I was given 2 photos of him - but they are both profiles and not very good, but better then nothing!!I am waiting for the 1940 census to come out next year to see if he still listed himself as "Alien".
