RE: [S-R] BANDZEJ surname
- Thanks for the info Karen. My family also attended St. Mary’s until Christ the Saviour was built. My grandparents were married at St. Mary’s and are buried in Grandview. I can’t find Genessee or A street on the map, but my relatives were mainly in Brownstown.

My husband's family left Slovakia in the late 1800s/early 1900s for Johnstown. This Bandzej family, along with Lukac(s) and Chupko. It is also my understanding that the Demo family in Johnstown may also have been related. The Chupko and Demo families are from Sumiac, a small village in Slovakia. They were also in the Greek Catholic records in Slovakia. From my records it lists their family as attending St. Mary's Byzantine's Church, Johnstown, PA. They lived on Genessee Street and A. Street in Johnstown.
Hope this helps.

>Hi Karen – just excited to see another family buried at Christ the Saviour. My great grandparents are buried there. Did your family all live in Johnstown? What part? And mine were in the Greek Catholic records in Slovakia (KAPUSANY, FULIANKA, ORLOV)
