6978Re: [S-R] ? WANCHISEN-CHOBERKA from Korejovce (fwd)
- Mar 3, 2003Hello list members,
Please pass this onto your friend as we may be related. Thank you.
I am also researching the Chobirka surname. My husbands grandfather was Russian Orthodox and was born about 1886. My husband knows the name of the village or town, he came from, but I cannot spell it. I have my husband's father's baptismal certificate and the grandfather's name is spelled Yan or Jan Cobirka with the hacek over the C. My husband's father's name was spelled Michal. I know the grandfathrt immigrated to the states about 1909 or so and the grandmother and her son followed later. I have not found the port of entry or ship yet. The grandfather married a Anna Y or Juhason with the hacek over the Y or J.

Medvedie records. Medvedie is just a short distance north of
Korejovce. Unfortunately, I could not find the church records for Medvedie
at the FHL site:
the records for Korjovce, Krajna Porubka, and Sarbov are with the Medvedie
church register. A place search on all the villages did not bring up any

(pronounced Chobirka) in Svidnik.
