> Hello, I do recognize the name of Mihaly, I have steam ticket
receipts that was sent to Pereszta Mihaly Peresztyak feb. 5 1911 in
Belesto' that is what that last part looks like to me anyway and I
sure do appreciate the help. Can you tell how I would even begin to
find a birth record?? Thank you, Christina
There was a Belebele (H) located in Bereg megye (county), Hungary.
There were 4 Mihaly listed and the closest arrival date was September
1912. Other 3 Mihaly came in 1904 and 1907.
What was the name of the steam ship company on the receipt ?
On September 13, 1912, Mihaly Pereszta age 26, married,
arrived at Ellis Island (NYC)
Ship was Saxonia, Cunard liner sailing from Trieste to NYC.
Then port of Trieste was located in Austria and now is in Italy.
Mihaly was born in Isnyéte, Hungary.
He went to his brother-in-law Laszlo Kueter in Morgantown, W VA.
He had been in US before (1906/1908) also in Morgantown W VA.
So expect he had a sister living there.
The State Ukrainian Archives are divided by Oblasts (regions)
For your village you want :
4, Narodna Sq.
Doubt you know Ukrainian Cyrillic.
R K C || P A B |/| ? Ukrainian (Cyrillic)
(yah k s p r á v ee )
How are you ?
Expect that you will need a commercial company which does research in
Ukraine to retrieve any birth records.
