      Do you have an idea when your relatives came through Ellis Island and
      have you checked spelling variations of their names through the site?
      What was John Emil's wife's maiden name?

      At that time period, much of the area between Market Street and Third
      St was Slavic/Rusyn with a Jewish section along Passaic Street. Many
      Slovaks went to St Michael's - partly because people there spoke a
      language they knew. A little later in time it would have been St
      Peter & Paul's RO on Monroe St, I believe, just past Market.

      Yes, there is a strong likelihood your grandmother was GC if the baby
      is in St Peter's. My paternal grandparents and others are there.

      Have you tried asking the Passaic Vital Statistics for a copy of the
      baby's birth certificate ($10)? It might supply another set of
      spelling variations, so don't be surprised. I was born in Passaic.
      When I sought to obtain records from the period you identify, I found
      many are missing as midwives sometimes "forgot" to register the
      births. A fallback would be to write to the state but they now seek
      proof of a relationship to the party you are seeking. Sigh....

      Orendas was a particularly hard name for me to trace as I truly
      thought it was Hungarian. I did find Macko in the towns you listed,
      plus some others like Nitra and Jaklovce, but have not gotten
      further. There are also Mackos in Margecany.

      Emil(b. 1902d.1903) was buried in St. Peter's Greek Catholic Cemetery
      in Garfield New Jersey. Could it be that Mary was GC?
