I don't know if we'd be connected or not - I'm sure we may be in some way or another. My Great-grandfather was Michael Sovick (Sovjak) and lived in the Pittsburgh area. He was married to Mary (Maria) Lusik/Lusak. Mary's death certificate lists Austria/Hungary as her birthplace - I think Michael's might too, but they were technically from Slovakia/Czechoslovakia (depending on the time period you're talking about I guess!) All my info is at home - I'm thinking I recollect something about an Ann that might have been a sister to Michael. He might have actually lived with her for a time when he first came over. Let me check and see what I can find out. I'm in the process of requesting all this information from anyone in the family I can get it from! I'm really just starting my research now. I think Michael's father's name was Peter. Does this sound familiar?
