About Our Family Research

I am looking for relatives that would be related to my Grandfather and Grandmother, John and Rose Cestnik. My Grandfather John, his brother Vincent and father John came to America around 1903. They went to their sisters house in Pennsylvania, her name was Amelia(Margaret)Rager. Eventually the three came to montana, East Helena where my grandfather met Rose, and they then moved to Scotch Coulee, a suburb of Washoe and worked in the mines there. My Grandfathers, mother Anna Petelinsek did not come to America. We think she died in Germany. There was a sister Maria who never came to America. She was married in Leobin Austria and it is believed she lived in Germany. My grandfather and his brother were born in Planina 2, parish Trbolvje.
Rose (Teresya Gazvoda)name changed to Gazewood, came to America in 1907. She was born in Celje. Her mothers maiden name was Lenarcic, name changed to Leonard
