GASPEREC - Hlinik
- Looking for any information on siblings/parents of my great-
grandfather Frank (Frantisek) Gasperec. He was born on 22 Jul 1886
in Hlinik (immigrated 1902) and died 1 Sept 1967 in Chicago, IL. He
married Barbara Baranek in 1908 in Chicago and they had 6 children.
He had a brother Paul (10 Oct 1877 - 30 April 1961) who also lived
in Chicago There is another brother Stephen (Stefan) who also
immigrated to the US, There may have been another brother as well,
who remained in Slovakia.
Thanks in advance!
- The interesting thing about the family name Gasperec is that it ONLY
occurs in area code 041 or 042.
Hlinik exists in more than one place in Slovakia BUT Hlinik nad Vahom
is in area code 041. It is a "suburb" of the large town Bytca.
Here is one local listing:
