Lost and FOUND!
- With great thanks to Jozef, who responded to my plea on this list, I
have now located the village of my grandmother. And, perhaps more
significantly, I now know her original maiden name and have the names
and addresses of three current families of the same name in the village!
This is great progress that I could not have made with the help of Jozef
and his two daughters. They are a great credit to this list.
And, now, I can ask if the following information about my grandmother's
family has any meaning to other list members:
Village: Dlhe nad Cirochou
Surname: CHVOSTAL'OVA or CHVOSTAL'
Michael, b. 1858
Susan, b. 1865
John, b. 1884
Mary Katherine, b. 1887 (my grandmother)
They emigrated to the US in about 1895. Any information will be greatly
Thanks to all -- especially to Jozef!
