>From: Andy Verostko <averostko@...>Hi Andy,
Thanks for all the good info, Andy. I have been to the Family History Center,
which is where I ordered the microfilm with the passenger lists. I'm very
fortunate to live in the Chicago area because I can get to the Newberry
Library - which is a gold mine!
Newberry has lots and lots of info on Lake County, IN.
I did receive the marriage applications (1918) and certificate for my
grandparents - from Lake County, IN. But when I showed it to my half-sisters,
they immediately exclaimed that the handwriting was NOT their grandparents.
And they also pointed out a glaring error in my grandmother's birthdate. It
looks as if some clerk probably took the information orally, and recorded it
haphazardly. I'm not sure just how much English either of my grandparents
spoke at that time, but again, according to my half-sisters - not too much.
>Evsebet, (Hungarian)� Alzbeta, (Slovak) = Elizabeth.Please remember thatUpon a second look, my great grandmother's name was definitely Evsebet.
>Hungarian was the Language and name forms
Thanks so much, because this confirms another family member for me. My
grandfather's brother, Mike Rehtorik, died in PA - however there were two
around the same time period. But I have the death certificate for the Mike I
thought was the right one, and BINGO. His mother's name was Elizabeth Tomko.
