      Hi Vladimir,
      Sorry for the delay in replying to your kind message, but my computer
      crashed over the weekend; I am now back in business, though.
      One of my goals this summer once school ends(I work in our local school) is
      to get over to a nearby LDS center, so I am hoping to locate information on
      Presov there. I have checked the phone book in the past.

      My great grandmother came over through Castle Island, I'm assuming, since
      her family emigrated from Slovakia in 1886. I have begun checking what
      ship's manifests I can, but it's slow work.

      Her husband was John Maczko, b. 12.24.1878 in Saros-I'm assuming county
      here, too. You and I have corresponded about them in the past; as you can
      see, I have some better information on them now, due to there oldest child's
      death certificate and the 1910,1920 and 1930 US censuses, none of which
      revealed a village!

      Again, Vladimir, I am grateful for your help-I'll keep you posted as I am
      someday hoping to utilise your talents in Slovakia!

      Alyssa
