I am researching ancestors who came from Tot Prona/Slovenske Pravno and
Using Steve Morse's search tools, I have made a little database of the people
who came from Tot Prona/Slovenske Pravno (I found something like 25 different
spellings of that village name in the Ellis island database, so it takes
quite a bit of searching to find all of them.) There are about three hundred
people, with, as you'd expect, many intermarried families. They virtually all
went to Chicago, and (at least in the early years) settled in two small areas of
that city. I have been able to make some inferences about which individuals
were most likely associates of my grandfather.
Oddly enough, the people who came from Abrahamfalva, the town my grandfather
was born in (which is less than two miles away from Tot Prona), mostly went to
Ohio or Pennsylvania rather than Chicago.
If the information on Tot Prona people would be of interest to anyone, I
would be happy to share it.
