LADOMIROV is near village UBLA.
Seems to me a BRUSNICA villager *might* socialize with someone from
LADOMIROVA even though it is separated by 20 KM. They are both on a major
Back in the day, there was not even a connecting road or rail between
Brusnica and Ladomirov.
In terms of date incongruity. Are you sure your John Zozulak is in fact
the correct one? People in those times had the same name.
Look for patterns in the church book where the marriage entry occurred.
Same scribe? Were a whole bunch put in at once? Are you certain your
MAY is not MAR? Point us to the page and we'll have a look.
What port did they depart from? If they were married prior to departure
did one or both travel?
It's harder to have wrong dates on a ship manifest than on a church
ledger. Are you sure you have the correct John Zozulak on the manifest?
Have you corroborated against destination and left-behind/destination
Where someone is traveling from is not necessarily where they were born.
Have you examined the records in Ladomirova for any trace of the surname?
I am very suspicious that you may be dealing with two different men.
