      Just dropping by and leaving an update and a thanks to Peter once again
      for his help .

      Thanks for the translations Peter.....

      Kurimka is a village and municipality in Svidník District in the
      Prešov Region of north-eastern Slovakia. Currently

      Kríže is a village and municipality in Bardejov District in the
      Prešov Region of north-east Slovakia. Currently


      Michael Sr. immigrated from Kurimka 1893 leaving his pregnant wife back
      in the village. He died soon after his arrival to the Hazleton,Pa.
      Area (Tragically).

      Kupecz Mihaly died in Harleton by "eroszakos halal" = violent death. The
      note is: "A belugyminiszterium f. e. 93.624 sz. atviabu??? alapjan
      iratott be illegible signature" - recorded based on note of Ministry of
      Interior No 93.624

      Within a year of his death his wife Helen dies leaving newly born George
      and Brother Michal Kupecz an orphan.
      An older sister Anna born 1887 marries Janos Baran in Kurimka 1894.

      Widow of Kupecz Mihaly nee Vanyko Ilona
      Died of "Foldbeomlas altal agyonutve" = killed by landslide
      Note: "hatosagi engedelyel eltemetve" = buried with permission of
      authorities (maybe coroner)

      George is raised by an Aunt (Helen Baran and possibly Sister Anna of
      Kurimka) and immigrates himself along with cousin Ann Kupecz in 1911 to
      Bear Creek/Hazleton PA. to live with his older brother Michael born
      1890.

      Michael it is presumed to have immigrated to the Hazleton area a year or
      two before George.

      Online passenger list searches find dozens of villagers from Kurimka
      with a destination of Hazleton and the surrounding area.

      Steel Mills?

      George finds his way to Cleveland,Oh and in 1916 marries Anne Mohnacki
      of Krizse Slovakia. Has a family and dies an early death himself in 1935
      at age 42. Burried at Holy Ghost/Spirit Cemetery. Parma , Ohio.

      Michael was known to have visited George once in Cleveland possibly in
      the early 30's as his niece remembers one visit from her Uncle.

      He left to where he came from.....

      You can't make tis stuff up!
