Re: (S-R) Last Hope Research
- Dear Members of the List,
Research: Pavlik (Zemplen), Orslavsky (Ung)
To all of you who have so generously contributed your time and help to my
inquiry looking for my maternal Grandparents. I want to share some great news.
An absolutely marvelous discovery.
A wonderful woman from western PA (near Pittsburgh) has been following my
research on Slovak-Roots. She Instant-messaged me last night in an effort to help
in my research. While on-line she found my Grandmother on the Ellis Island
Passenger list on her return visit from home in 1905. I had seen this in the
past, but ignored it because I was looking for 1903 or 1904, and the age of
Grandmother (31) was too old. However this is Grandma traveling with son
Michael, daughter Helen and young son, John (born out of U.S.)
She happened to be traveling with my informant's Father's cousin from HAZIM.
I assume this is her home town or village. Her Grandparents also came from
Zemplen and Ung, and she herself has traveled to Hazim.
Can anyone tell me is the LDS History Center has records for the RC Church in
Hazim and what the file numbers might be?
She also made a suggestion as to Grandpa.
For those of you who have access, she discovered on EllisIsland manifests, one
Gyosgy Pavlik, arriving on SS Weimar from Bremen, September 3, 1898. He was
born in Zemplen and was RC. He is shown on Page 286, Line 10.
I am almost willing to accept him as Grandpa, except for some doubts I am
hoping one of you can help me with.
Gyosgy--Translation Please? Could this possibly be Joseph, or is it George?
His age should be 21-23, but it looks like 28 (too old).
Can anyone transcribe name of "Place of Residence"? In printed text it is
just shown as Haz (obviously they could not read it either). It looks too long
to be Hazim.
Can anyone translate the name of the sponsor, or why there is the name
"Michal Hudak" at the end of the line. Who could he be?
My last reservation is that he was going to Lebanon, Pa (which is near
Harrisburg), and I know that Grandpa was headed for the steel mills near Pittsburgh.
That makes me doubt if he is my Grandfather.
I already got hooked on Josef Pavlyik going to McKeesport with his brother
George. However they were from Bovoszlo which is not Zemplen. Also I never
heard of a brother George living in PA or elsewhere in the U.S. I have not
completely discounted this passenger, but I do not have a "good" feeling about him.
Should I be thrilled with finding Gysosgy or should I be wary and keep
Any advice or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!!!!

>His age should be 21-23, but it looks like 28 (too old).If you look down the age column, the writer shows 18 clearly for one
passenger, I think his "0's" look like "g's" and "1's" look like cursive
"l's". It looks like he wrote 20. (i.e. 40 on line 20). If you check the
column his "3's" are distinct.

Gyorgy, I Believe the relationship in the column for relative and location
is "acquaintance" but I can't make out the location. It looks like the
same place as line 16 was going to. Perhaps some native Pennsylvanians can
get the location of the acquaintance. It looks like "Conn" and below
"valle". Connelsville comes to mind but doesn't seem to fit. There
doesn't appear to be a name associated with the acquaintance, just a
location unless I'm wrong and Hudak is the acquaintance and was added
because it wasn't entered initially.
His entry continues on the next page also but it just gives the county,
nationality, religion, etc.
