Hi Don; I am researching my family tree.My grandmother was Susan (Zuzana) Bartko Paranac.She emigrated from Austria Hungary at age 19 on the SS Bremen in 1902. I believe sent was born in either Benice, (village) or Presov.Grandpop John Paranac sent for a bride because his first wife died, (he was a miner).I believe they originally lived in Japan Jeddo, then later Oakdale where my aunt,(97) and uncle (70ish) still reside in the family home, (a duplex).I know my grandmother had a brother (John) close by, in PA., although she did see him much and I will get further info from my 86 year old mother. Perhaps he was Joannes I'll also find out about the churches they attended, defintely St. Mary's in Hazleton. I am also searching in Slovakia. I can't find either on Ellis Island.orgI maytake a trip to Slovakia this fall. It's great to finally connect with someone.Hope we all have something in common.
