Re: [S-R] Paula/Lacsni, Gajdos, Mlinarcik, Jeriscak
- It's amazing to me that they were even able to keep all of that info
in order. Those ships probably had between 500 to 1000 or more
peoople on them and getting all of that written down. Wow! I know
that ships captain did most of it on the manifest, but it had to be
done again after they arrived in port.
I have had many people tell me, including some on this list, that
their ancestors didn't talk about the old country after they came
here. My family was no exception. My grandfather died before I was
born and my grandmother died when I was 10, so I didn't have the time
to ask them about their lives. Not to mention that fact that they
lived 1000 miles away.
Oops, pc is making noise again. Better send this before it goes

- Our groups are truly blessed with the professional people who are members.
Not only our two wonderful Vladimirs, but also Helene, Helen, Martin, Danusa,
Bill, Lawrence and many other professionals who have tremendous knowledge and

Mr. Bohinc is the topic of this posting because I have read recent emails to
the group. He deserves far better than the attack he received from one of the
members but the original poster already cleared up the issue and has
apologized for the misunderstanding.
On the subject of anonymity, I don't like it. While I respect those who
prefer to write anonymously, I just do not think it is a good idea. If you do not
want your postings to forever remain in cyberspace, just write privately to
the person you are addressing. Just throwing in my two cents on the issue of
