About Our Family Research

Records show a Miss Aumi Ovadek arrived, 1909. After more research I have determined that this is actually Miss Anna Ovadek who arrived the first time in 1904 and made several trips to the U.S. Twice while single and at least once back to kuchyna, Slovakia for vacation with two sons after marriage to Martin Bednard. Immigration was notorious for spelling errors and ineligible handwriting.
