  • Does anyone have any familiarity with the New York state vital records indexes? Per the state website, there are copies at eleven libraries scattered around the state. I am planning a trip to Pennsylvania later this year; and the library in Binghamton is within driving distance of where I will be. What I am trying to do is obtain information on the marriage of my g-grandparents...

  • Roger -- If you know the state, it's not terribly hard to find the RC dioceses it contains. The website for each diocese should contain a list of parishes. Lots of times also it will contain a list of now extinct (I think the term is suppressed) parishes. No question that this is a brute force method. But it may be what you're reduced to. For those parishes, an email to the diocese...

  • Death certificate says only Czechoslovakia for place of birth. If Joseph is, as I believe, related to Andfrew place of birth will likely be in the eastern portion of Slovakland in the general area of Kosice.

  • I have at long last found what seems to be a family attachment to my g-grandfather Andrew Bellak. The guy in question is one Joseph Bellak. Joseph came to the US in 1888 and seems to have been a farmer and later a grocer in the Phoenixville, PA area (near Valley Forge). The family name in current times has morphed to Bellock. Joseph died in 1938. I've attached a copy of the PA...

  • Greg -- The PA Department of Health website now has listings of birth records for the period 1906-1908. They are adding them at the rate of 1 year's worth per year--law requires that they can't put a birth in public record until after 105 years. Plymouth is in Luzerne County. Believe that Wilkes Barre is the County seat. If county civil records are available, you have to start...

  • Thanks to everyone. This falls in the category of stuff that you knew must be there somewhere, but still couldn't find. This Elizabeth Brestovits fits well into the reality of events. There was also one born in Also Mislye in 1855. But that would have made her only 13 when she had her first child. Possible, but not likely. This one would be aged 40 when her last child was born...

  • I have found what may be the birth record for my g-grandmother Elizabeth Brestovics on familysearch.org. It makes sense. From everything I've found out, Elizabeth was born between 1848 and 1850 near (then) Also Mislye, now Nizna Mysla. She lived in that village from about 1868 until 1906, when she left for the US after the death of her husband Josef Beganyi. The record is at...

  • My apologies. The date should read 21 Aug 1906. The ship Bremen is correct. It comes from Ancestry.com. They call the name Gonezi. It is part of their "New York Passenger Lists 1820-1957" file. On the manifest page, it is lines 8 and 9, which are partly lined out. You have to enlarge it quite a bit to get a good look. What nails it for me is that Zuzanna's destination is exactly...

  • Zuzanna Gres was born in Lubisce on 14 NOV 1876. She came to the US in 1895. She was married to Joseph Gensci (my g-grandmother's brother) in August 1897 in South Bethlehem (PA). The couple was living in Philadelphia for the 1900 US Census on North Fairhill Street, with no children. They had a daughter Mary in 1903. In 1905 Zuzanna, with Mary, made a return visit to Lubisce. But...
