Re: Info on Russian family Slawata
This is likely your Demitri's WW I Draft Registration
Name: Metro Slavuta
Residence: Manville, Somerset
State: New Jersey
Birth Date: 12 Nov 1882
Employer Johns Manville
Wife Anna Stazia
SLAWUTA would sound like slavuta.... this spelling would concur with Zlatica's judgment call... and Anna Stazia may confirm your family lore that her name was Anastasia...
There are numerous Social Security Death Index records for SLAWUTA in NJ
Oh and Metro is a diminutive for Dmytro.
Could this be one of the boys from the 1930 census?
Census - US Federal 1930 … New Jersey » HUDSON » HUDSON CO CATHOLIC PROTECTORY FOR BOYS » 9-315 » Sheet 2A
Slawata, John (b: 1918*)
Also 1908 as shown on the census may be off... there is nothing that was officially certified on US Census records.
Perhaps this is your Demtri!
