I found the following message on www.iarelative.com/slovakia.htm.
Researching: GODA, GODONIA, POPOVICH Searching the Goda family. Goda (spelled Godonia before coming to America) John, b. 1861 in Vienna, Austria and coming to America in 1879. Supposedly changed the spelling of the name upon entering through Ellis Island. He was married to Mary Popovich, born around 1871. Applied for citizenship papers in 1900 in Pennsylvania and came to Indiana through Ohio. They had 8 children all born in Indiana except for John who was born in Ohio. The family is found in 1920 census of Indiana. Any help would be appreciated. email: - MGODALPM@aol.com - Posted 22 September 1996
