RE: [S-R] New to the list RUNCAK OR RUSIC
I have two friends, surnames RUNC'AK (roon-chak) and RUSIC' (roo-sich)
from the my ancestral Villages of Nova Sedlica (Ujsek) and Zboj
(Harczos) in extreme northeast Slovakia. These villages are on the
Poland-Ukraine borders. Remarkably, they are seeking their families in
America. We are having a heck of a time finding them in the States -
the name appears to have been altered dramtically. It is easier to find
someone in Slovakia than in America! RUNCAK initially immigrated to
Scranton/Dunmore 1904-06 and stayed with my relatives.
Does any of this sound familiar? What years did your immigrants arrive?
To where? Have you searched www.ellisisland.org for them?
