Re: New to Group
- I noticed in Barbara's e-mail that she mentions (regarding her maternal
great-grandfather) that "His certificate of arrival number, printed on his
naturalization papers, is written.." . This is the first time I've heard of
a Certificate of Arrival Number; Is this the number that shows on her
Naturalization Petition (AR# 4700902 - bottom left) or would appear on only
Naturalization Papers and can anyone please advise as to how I might trace
that back to an Ellis Island Manifest? I have a great-aunt that I have been
trying to identify as to when she came to the US and we only know her
married surname and, if I can relate a Certificate of Arrival Number back to
a Manifest, it will resolve a mystery that my brother and I have been trying
to solve for 5 years now.
FYI: Also, I am tracking the following family names (Arrivals from 1900 -
1910) and would appreciate if anyone else has any information on the
Paternal Side of Family
Gaba from Vagujfalu or Nove Mesto
Hanacsek from Kocsoce or Trencin
Hajdusek from Kocsoce or Trencin
Maternal Side of Family
Bull (Bul) from Nyitra Sarfo or Radosina
Vrba from Radosina

In case you did not know, Varsanyik is spelled Vars~anik in modern Slovak. There are still Vars~anik that live in Sliepkovce and Michalovce, any relation?

These towns are just south of Mihalovce in Zemplen Megye. They can be found online at the pilot search site of the Family History Website.
