  • Hi Paul, I’m not an expert - however, the occupation is “famulus” - Latin for servant. Also “or.” is an abbreviation for the Latin word originis - origin or place of birth and Kocsocz is the old name for present day Kocovce. Hope this helps, Sandra On Aug 6, 2017, at 11:02 AM, pmruzicka@^$1 [SLOVAK-ROOTS] < SLOVAK-ROOTS@^$2 > wrote: On this page ( https://familysearch.org...

  • HI Nick, You need to get a subscription to Newspapers.com . There are MANY articles. I suspect there will be more found using different search terms and digging through as the spelling of the names varies. Have fun!

  • Hello, My ancestors were from nearby Nemcovce and attended the Roman Catholic church in Kapusany. I am very familiar with the records. Yes, the priest did like to use surnames, alias names and hyphenated surname/alias names with no rhyme or reason. Yes, “alias” does mean alias or nickname. I use the 1869 census as a family relationship cheat sheet. Kapusany isn’t so large, so...

  • Greg, Pennsylvania began requiring marriage licenses in the fall of 1885. I suspect your great-grandparents were married prior to 1885. Birth and death certificates were not required in Pennsylvania until 1906, after your great grandfather left for Montana. Do you know when they emigrated to the U.S.? Are they on the 1880 census? Your only source of records for birth, marriage and...
