Re: [S-R] US Baptisms recorded in Austria-Hungary records
- One branch of my family is Mikulsak which was changed to McCluskey in 1915. The children's mother died tragically and her parents, who were Puskar immigrants from Nagydomasa thought the children would be better off with a more "American" name. The children, my distant McCluskey cousins, always thought their grandfather was Irish!!

I love your comment about the "Waspy Sounding Name".
My great-grandmother' s tombstone spells her last name
ZANDOR. The family latter became SANDOR.
The tombstones of her children are all SANDERS.
