      I too am searching for this information regarding my ancestor who returned to Peterfalu sometime after 1906

      I was told by someone at the National Archives  to look into the ports they might have used. He suggested a German group www.theggg.org that may be able to assist since my family member originally had departed Germany for America.

      Subject: [S-R] Ancestors returning to homeland



       
      Does anyone know where I could obtain information of my ancestors reurning to Slovakia after not liking the conditions in America? My great grandmother departed either in late 1913 or early 1914 returning to Velky Saris, Slovakia with at least 4 of her children, and possibly being pregnant with the 5th. All of these children are now deceased. She never returned to American but all except one of th children returned to America after the war. Would she have needed a passport to return if she wasn't a citizen of the US?

      I believe her oldest daughter was 14 at the time of her mother's return and that she stayed behind and became a domestic servant. I've reached a dead end. Wanda

        “After the outbreak of World War I, passports were required by executive order,[11] though there was no statutory authority for the requirement. During World War I (1914–1918), European countries had passport requirements. The Travel Control Act of May 22, 1918 permitted the president, when the United States was at war, to proclaim a passport requirement, and a proclamation was issued on August 18, 1918. Though World War I ended on November 11, 1918, the passport requirement lingered until March 3, 1921.[12]”
        From this information I would say no passport was needed by your great-grandmother. From previous readings I know that a majority of Slovak immigrants did return home. The idea was earn $1000 in the USA and go home to start a new life by buying land. You search would have to be for your great-grandmother’s entry port and the ship’s manifest on which she was listed. http://theggg.org/Surnamedb.asp is the link to the GGG surname database.
        Have you found your great-grandmother’s entry into the USA? What was her name? Have you found her in the Velky Saris records? I have maternal relatives from nearby Maly Saris.
