- Oct 29, 2007ELLIS ISLAND LISTINGS
I use the Morse front end, Gold Form, for researching Ellis Island
You can use just a few letters for the name or village and check off
several language choices, eg: Hungarian, Slovak, Ruthenian. Be aware
that transcription errors abound and so you should always look at the
manifest, which often has two pages.
I searched Baskovce and found >>>OVAD<<< on Ellis Island.
Then I went to Slovak phone listings.
Ovad Milan Bakovce 78, Bakovce
Ovad Pavol Bakovce 84, Bakovce
Ovadová Mária Bakovce 33, Bakovce
These instances of OVAD(OVA) are in Baskovce north of Sobrance
(former Ung Megye). Cisarik also shows Ovad(ova) in Baskovce north of
This is beginning to look like a contender.
