Re: Looking for Sovenian relatives
It is very hard to help you, but I will try.
You do not know for sure that there was Roman Catholic church in Velike Lasce. There are nomicrofilmed church records .
This is the entry of your Great Grandfather into the USA
9. Andrej Praznik Vel Lasce 1899 25
Andrej's wife was Agnes. She was born about 1876 in Slovenia. I have not found her entry into the USA. From some of my research on www.familysearch.org looks like her maiden name was Agnes Koslar. There was a male stillborn October 31 1908 in Eveleth to Andrew Prasnik and Agnes Koslar.
1910 Census AndrewPrasnik 35 from Austria

SpouseAgnes Prosznikborn 1876 Slovenia
ChildrenAndrew Prosznik , Louis Prosznik
1940 Census Andrew Proznick born 1875 Austria residence Eveleth City , Minnesota
Notice the different spellings, Praznik 1899
Agnes immigrated in 1900. Do not know if she was married to Andrew at that time.
