Hi Joe: Joe, could you please check what I have here. This is my great-great grandfather. The previous information I had was he came through Ellis Island and is from Velke Lasce (sp). He moved to Eveleth, Minnesota and had to sons with Agnes or AAgneza. I wrote to Parish Priest and a couple of other people. Praznik was how it was spelled and then when they came to Eveleth they had Proznik. I had also heard that they could have come from Racica, too. But Great-great Grandpa Andrej came over with his wife Agnes. Do you know who some other people I can write to at Vel Lasce to find out if someone can help. I have trouble maneuvering through the internet. I would be very thankful for anything more.
