Hello again Kerry,
I am a little confused and hope you can clarify for me. You are posting on a Slovak board and mention baptismal records. Do you have baptismal records in your possession, or did you find them online? Do you know the name of the ancestral village/town? Are you looking to trace family in ancestral home or follow them through in USA? Do you have any obituaries or other documents that can offer clues? Who was the first in this family line to immigrate to USA? When? I'm just trying to determine what information you have vs. what you need now and in what location?
Have you contacted the Mahoning Genealogical Society? You mentioned they settled in Youngstown (Mahoning County), OH - Have you contacted the cemeteries there to see if any of your relatives are buried there? http://www.mahoningcountychapterogs.org/Cemetery%20two.htmhttp://www.mahoningcountychapterogs.org/Cemetery%20two.htm
Sometimes the cemeteries keep obituaries on file as well.
If you are looking to follow them in USA, have you posted on the OH boards?
Do you subscribe to or have you checked the free online historic newspapers? https://sites.google.com/site/onlinenewspapersite/
[Was your ggf born in 1873 or '74?]
Do you subscribe to any genealogy websites such as Ancestry.com (so we don't duplicate your efforts!)
