Re: Ruska Vola nad Popradom church records
- Thank you Ben, I feel a little better, but still quite dumb! My
father's side was Roman Catholic, and when my parents married, they
married in mom's church. I was taunted by his side of the family
telling me we were not going to heaven because we didn't believe in
the Pope (how stupid) and what was funny was when I grew up and
married in a Roman Catholic church I found very little difference,
except in confession, we were face to face with the priest on a
kneeler (really made you behave because you never knew if he would
tell your mom) and not in a confession box.
Right now my head is spinning with all the new avenues to follow,
maybe when I am finished I will know something.

I was just clearing out old emails and found yours. Did you every hear from anyone named Conjelko other than me about Anna Chupinka? Unfortunately, neither my husband know anything about his aunt-by-marriage.

If you would like to see if your cousins know of my family that would
be very nice, and I would appreciate it. I do know my grandfather had
a sister Julia, and Mary and a brother named Nicholas. Also you can
give them my e-mail address if you like.
