My name is Steve Papesh. I am looking for any info on my grandfather, Martin Papez, born in Zuzemberk in 1888. Family oral history says he and brother Gregor emigrated to US 1895-1900. He married Johanna Mazlo, born Trieste and they settled in Joliet, IL.
My aunts visited cousins living in the Zuzemberk area in the 1970's and in France in the 1980's, but the aunts are gone now.
Any info you might be able to provide would be appreciated.
