We knew very little until then about when or how the Sofrankos (other than our little group in Westmoreland County, PA) came to be here. But I now think that almost all Sofrankos in the US may be from the same place. If you look at Ellis Island records most will say they came from Kortvelyes which is the Hungarian name of Hrusov. I am curious to know how many Sofranko(s) may be from Kortvelyes. From what I can tell the eastern PA, Pittsburgh and Fayette County people may be from the same family. Then again, I may be wrong but this is how it looks.
