- Last month I asked about Shorough, Austria. I found out the right
spelling where my ancesters are from.
My great-grandfather ( Pogash ) was born at Zbowf, Austria on Sept.
14, 1877. My other great-grandfather ( Bardzak ) was born in Ostrov,
Czecho-Slovakia on Oct. 19, 1872. This information I got off their
petitions for naturalization.
Also, I received my grandmother birth certificate, but I think it is
in Slovak. I can make out when she was born and baptised and her
parents names. ( Peter and Anna Farga Coma or Choma ) I do know that
she was born on Feb. 15, 1891 in Akubjany, Czecho-Slovakia.
My grandfather was born at Kodnickyana, Cz-Slovakia on August, 1890.
( Bondura ). His parents came to the U.S. with him.
Any information on the towns or ancestors would be helpful.
