Re: [SLOVAK-ROOTS] Re: Austria-Hungary KOVIEC or KOVICE
- Hello Dr. "Q":
Sorry, I thought my previous messages would automatically be part of my new
outgoing message once I clicked on the "reply" botton. The e-mail I have at
work works that way.
I am a bit lost when it concerns my grandfather. I have a form that he
filled out (maybe a draft of the census, I don't know) where he says he comes
from Kassa Hamor. The ship manifest says his "last place of residence" was
Kassa. Then the marriage certificate has Koviec or Kovice. I remember my
mother telling me that he used to say that he came from a small village where
everyone had the surname "Petrik".
His death certificate is of no help whatsoever, as it says his parents are
"unknown" (not true) and he was from Czechoslovakia.
I have no clue what to do now. Thanks for your help! :)

<< Can you give us any idea of an area of Slovakia you suspect.
To answer the question in your other post - Ko¹ice was still under Hungarian
control in 1907 so it would be listed as Kassa in official records.
Note - - - it is helpful to leave at least some of the previous message to
you reply so the subject can be followed.
