24215RE: [S-R] Petricsko Surname in Szacsur, Zemplen County
- Dec 3, 2009Hi Heather,
I don't have the family name, but I can give you another source. Numerous
people, including Mick Sura and Jim have uncovered that the archive in
Satoraljhely, Hungary contains many records from the areas of Slovakia that
were in the former Zemplen county. In fact, Mick was able to provide an
1880s decade of gap records he found there.
The trick is, someone has to go there to get them, and know what you are
looking for. The Archive will officially deny holding these records (the
treaty at the end of WWI called for the repatriation of all records to
successor countries.) As such, you can't write to the Hungary archives
requesting them. You would need to hire someone like Mick to go down there
and make digital copies for you.
You might also want to consider writing to families in Slovakia with your
surname. Those closest to the ancestral village would be the most

Subject: [S-R] Petricsko Surname in Szacsur, Zemplen County
I've been reading posts for months now and am finally ready to post.
My ggrandfather JANOS PETRICSKO came from SZACSUR, Zemplen County, Hungary
(now Sacurov, Zemplen, Slovakia) to US in 1881. I have found him and his
brother and what looks like foster parents on the 1869 census for this town.
Vital greek catholic parish records have a 20 year gap before and after his
birth, 1858. I've checked FHL.
My aunt said there is a priest in Canada that has all the information on the
Petricsko family tree. A pretty loose lead indeed.
I would like to extend this line. Does anyone have the surname PETRICSKO in
their family tree? Just looking to connect with possible family and get
more info on this surname.
Thank you ahead of time!
