Came across this forum by accident and was surprised to find it. Can't help with any of the inquiries currently posted, sorry. I'm in the midwest and am second generation in USA. Grandparents from what was the Austro Hungarian Empire. It was lots of countries at different times due to boarder changes/wars. Most of my family has stayed in the midwest, ie: Wisconsin, Illinois, Michigan, Indiana, Ohio. Hope this forum "sticks around". I will check on a regular basis.
