We found a cousin with items starting back from 1911. Included were pictures from Dovghe, UKR. We couldn't figure out which language was used through internet translators. My Aunt found someone who was able to identify the language as a special Slovak dialect called Šarišsky. The translator said this dialect is very old and basicaly it's a mix of Slovak, Polish and Serbian.
I happen to have a Serbian/Slovak friend that has been able to translate now that the language has been identified. Through the translations we identified two of my great grandmother(Maria Stasko Lupinacci)'s sisters (I suspect one was a full sister and one was a half). The half sister had the married name Kovacs (Elizaveta Stasko Kovacs, husband Miski) the other sister was identified as Margiti.
Still no word from the archives in Uzhhorod. To say I am disappointed is an understatement. With the quick reply asking me to resend the letter in Russian, I was thinking I would have heard something by now.
Any ideas on next steps? I think that there is a greek catholic in the town. I have been looking on ways to contact them, but have not found anything yet to see if they might have copies of old records.
I have also been trying to find someone in town to help with trying to help find and send me pictures of graves. I am looking for the graves of any Staskos or Schütz but more particularly Erzsebeth Schütz Stasko b.4 Nov 1866 - d.5 Mar 1904 and Gyorgy Stasko.
