      country and an age was about all that you needed.

      Hello Sandra,

      We probably aren't the only ones having trouble locating the immigration
      records of people in the early 1800's.

      I have looked for grandmother Susan Krisso's record for years now. She and
      two sister's came over from Gálsécs/ Secovce. I have searched Kryz, Kris,
      Kres, Kriso and don't seem to come up with anything. Acc. to the census,
      Susan immigrated in 1885 or 1886. She married in 1889 here in Philadelphia,
      Pa.
      I finally, I think, I found grandfather Stefan Makara, who came in 1884 and
      his name was written as Mookara !
      Don't give up ! Don't get discouraged.

      Christine

      Hello All,

      Is anyone else having difficulties tracking down their ancestors'
      immigration records? Many of my Slovak relatives immigrated early to mid
      1880's and I am unable to locate their records. They were from Saros County.

      Thanks - Sandra
