Three days ago I gave you info that they came from Slovenia!
Franz's manifest does NOT state he was Croatian... it simply says he was Austrian
Janez manifest shows he was SlOvEnian not SlAvOnian former residence Lablano
Michael manifest states he is Slovenian NOT Slovakian
No the name was NOT originally spelled PHRAMPUS!Names were NEVER changed at Ellis Island!The ship manifest was written at the port of departure in Europe with info taken from Passports the immigrant obtained in his home country... in this case Slovenia.PH would not be a combination found in Slovenia...
Did the remain in Pennsylvania?
On Apr 9 I left you the following message on Ancestry.com
Surnames should appear in all CAPS... this will help identify the name you are search for..... Also subject lines such as "searching for ancestors" will get less notice... after all we are all searching for ancestors :)
The given name Janez would suggest at least Janez FRAMPUS is from Slovenia.
Anton = Anthony
Franz = Frank
It would also help would be volunteers if you gave DOB, DOD, places they resided, and if they emigrated or not.
