- TO: Robert Gresdo <rgresdo@...>, RE:SKYPE NAME SEARCHS( "TRY IT--YOU'LL LIKE IT TOO! " )---Re: Family History- Prasice, Slovakia:Bob,FOR ME, I found that a SKYPE name search for "Detkova" turned up 123 "possibles" FROM ALL OVER THE WORLD ( YOU CAN ELIMINATE SOME,BUT, SOME OF THE NAMED CONTACTS CITE EITHER THE CITY AND/OR COUNTRY WHICH THE "SKYPER" PROVIDED AS INFO---Skype is free phoning, FREE AUDIO-VIDEO TWO-WAY CONVERSATIONS, and free SMS WHEN SENT TO/FROM OTHER "SKYPE-ERS" BUT, ONLY WHEN CONDUCTED OVER THE INTERNET ( "SKYPE-ERS"= MY just THIS VERY MOMENT created NEOLOGISM ).. HOWEVER I WOULD STRONGLY SUGGEST THAT YOU PURCHASE A MINIMUM $10.DOLLAR CREDIT IN ORDER TO COVER ANY SMS, OR PHONE CALLS TO "NON-SKYPERS"---BEFORE THIS , I WAS "DEAD IN THE WATER" = " UP AGAINST A / THE BRICK WALL" IN SEEKING INFO. RE DETKOVI ---- THIS IS HOW I OBTAINED MY "HOT LEADS" FOR WHICH I WILL INVESTIGATE DURING MY NEXT TRIP TO SK )---WITH FAMILY MEMBERS , I VISITED THE CHURCHS ( ST. JACUB???) CEMETERY, , THERE WERE MANY OTHER "PALUSOVI" 'RESIDING' THERE, BUT SOME OF WHICH WAS TOLD WERE NOT MY RELATIVES--- I SUSPECT THAT SOME OF THEM MAY WELL HAVE BEEN , AS MOST SLOVAKS , PARTICULARILY THOSE IN SMALL VILLAGES ,DON'T SEEM TO BE TOO VERY INTERESTED IN "PRA-RODICE" GENEALOGY, BUT, SEEM ,RATHER TO BE "TOO CAUGHT -UP IN THE MOMENT" ABOUT EVERY DAY LIVING TASKS--LIKE EARNING A LIVING, TAKING CARE OF FAMILY, AND OTHER "AT THIS MOMENT", "DEEMED NECESSARY" LIFE ACTIVITIES....THEN, AGAIN, THEY JUST MIGHT NOT BE AWARE OF THEIR ALSO = MY MORE DISTANT ANCESTORS.By the way, Grandpa Emery/Immerick/EMORY Palus came over in 1910---Some several years ago, I came across a web posting in which an 'ancient' local (SK) newspaper article stated thatthere were two who came over = left Pracise at the same time, but the other person was not named.

Thank you for your relpy. My father never talked about the old country. It is as small worldafter all. My Great Grandfather George Gresdo maried Eva Palus (Date of Birth 1775) infor from my Grandfather's SSA Records. He was married to Anna Valma Pourbsky. My father's birth record a photo copy that I found. I do have an an original thatis in very bad shape. My Grandfather has 4 children. Anna, Vera, John (my father) and Frank. My uncle Frank added a W to Gresdow. The original name Grezdo was changed to Gresdo. Records show that the family (My grandmother Anna, my aunt Anna her Sister Vera and John and Frank came over in 1911. I cannot find when George came over. It appears and I didnt know until researching that quite a few
GREZDO. The Grezdo came over to the US in 1911. For a long time I didnt know that there were amy other Gresdo's here in the US until I started my search. So I am try to find out who my greatgrand father and mother were. There Brother and Sisters and what happen to the family I do know from the internet that there are a lot of Grezdo in Slovakia. Thanks again for your reply .. Bob Gresdo, Rosedale, Maryland, USA.
