- May 5, 2013I too am searching for this information regarding my ancestor who returned to Peterfalu sometime after 1906
I was told by someone at the National Archives to look into the ports they might have used. He suggested a German group www.theggg.org that may be able to assist since my family member originally had departed Germany for America.

Subject: [S-R] Ancestors returning to homeland
Does anyone know where I could obtain information of my ancestors reurning to Slovakia after not liking the conditions in America? My great grandmother departed either in late 1913 or early 1914 returning to Velky Saris, Slovakia with at least 4 of her children, and possibly being pregnant with the 5th. All of these children are now deceased. She never returned to American but all except one of th children returned to America after the war. Would she have needed a passport to return if she wasn't a citizen of the US?
I believe her oldest daughter was 14 at the time of her mother's return and that she stayed behind and became a domestic servant. I've reached a dead end. Wanda
