      The letters in my message did not come across correctly. The e with the
      accent mark should be a c with a little v over it. The current spelling of
      the name (without the diacritical marks) is Micuch.

      Dear Karen,



      There are only two immigration records for people whose names are spelled
      precisely Miczuch, Gyorgy in 1912 and Antal in 1913. They are not brothers
      (different fathers), but they come from the same place-Kutas in Trencsen
      county, now Kotesova SK, just west of Zilina.



      Today the name is spelled Mièúch and there are 80 of them in the Slovak
      telephone directory. (The letter "cz," pronounced like "ts," is obsolete. In
      Slovak it is written è.) Seven of them are from Kotesova (plus another four
      Mièúchova).



      This is not proof that your great-great grandparents came from there, but it
      is at least a clue to follow up on. LDS has the microfilms of the Roman
      Catholic church records for this village 1789-1949, available through your
      local Family History Center. If you do not find them in those records, you
      might try other villages where the name seems to cluster in the phone
      directory, especially Poruba (18 Mièúch and 4 Mièúchova). Church records
      should be available for most if not all of these villages.



      You have your great-grandfather's date of birth from his WWI registration,
      so you can look to see if his baptism is recorded there. That should help
      establish if you have the right village.



      Janet

      -

      Thanks for all your responses.

      I have the marriage certificate of my great grandparents. No parent names.
      Great Grandfather's Death certificate only lists mother's first name
      and full name of father.
      Draft registration card for WWI and WWII list no parent names either.
      Any other ideas? I'm running out of them.
