My grandfather would have arrived in this country sometime around 1904. His name was Andrew John Fedak and he suopposedly came here from trebisov in slovak republic with his young daughter, my Aunt Mary. There is rumor, totally unsustantiated, that a brother came with him at around the sme time and later went west for Pittsburgh or who knows. Andrew lived and worked in Swedeland, just outside Philadelphia. This is all info I have. Your NYC Fedak is probably not related, but thought I'd check and see if you knew of brothers and sisters to your NYC Fedak.
