      Ellis Island opened 1 Jan 1892, but ....”During the evening of June 14, 1897, a fire on Ellis Island, burned the immigration station completely to the ground. Although no lives were lost, many years of Federal and State immigration records dating back to 1855 burned along with the pine buildings that failed to protect them.” From the Ellis Island history on the website.
      So it may well be that that Jacob and his family’s immigrations records burned in the fire.

      My paternal family has links to Plavnica. My paternal grandmother was Helena Scerbak, her mother was Anna Rindos.
      I will take a look at the records and see if I can find something.

      Hello: My name is Nancy and I just joined this group a few weeks ago. I have been trying to find information on my maternal grandparents. I have been using LDS site and have a cousin who checked on Ancestry.com, but we can't seem to find much info from Slovakia.
      Grandfather: Jacob Rendos Born: May 16, 1867 Died: Sept 12, 1932 Born in Plavnica, Eastern Slovakia. Grandmother: Theresa Rendos Maiden name: Parana
      Born March 5, 1867 Died: November 30, 1950 Also born in Plavnica. Jacob came to this county in 1892. We cannot find any record on Ellis Island. Theresa came in 1897 with their oldest son, Steve. We have found her in the Ellis Island records.
      Jacob had a brother, Frank, who was married to Susie and they came over in 1890. Also, there might have been another brother: John and wife Mary, who came to the US in 1901 (John) and 1906 (Mary).
      I was hoping to find maybe a marriage record for Jacob and Theresa. Since they came from the same town I imagine they were married there. Their son, Steve was born in 1890, so I figure 1888-89.
      Are there any web sites that I might check out that would give me some info.
      Thanks: Nancy
