12710Sempa, Cempa and/or Soltis
- Aug 2, 2005New to the forum and confused.
Try as I might I have not figured the place name business out.
Following some good advice I will only ask one question concerning
Maternal grandmother was Mary Soltis, daughter of Catherine Soltis
Kasisky (remarried). Mary was married to George Sempa/Cempa and
immigrated to Pittston PA with her first child in 1896. Bible records
indicate birthplace as Nizno Lapse Zupa Spiska. (spelling???)
No Ellis Island record. No more info on George, who may have been
called Adelbert. Family mythology places this area in Galicia but
that could be wrong. Grandma died 1950 (was called Babu) and never
I could tell you what I think that village locator means but the
mixing and matching of Slovak, Hungarian and Polish terms has got me
very confused. Any help would be appreciated because I cannot locate
this place as of yet.
Any help in providing online URL's of appropriate shipping records
Thank you to all in advance.
