      What information do you need to find when my grandfather, Jozef Popadak &
      grandmother, Ana Censak arrived? They arrived Ellis Island.

      From Kosice

      My Dear Mr. B. J.,

      You are off by a number of years, at least 19. I found your Grampa. The
      manifest lists his middle name, "Skuta".

      The town of origin is unclear but my research indicates there are people with
      his name in Parnica, Orava.

      I could not send the info , (jpg) here so CHECK YOUR EMAIL.

      Happy May 1st!

      Z Bohom,

      The correct spelling of names is an ongoing problem. I am constantly
      amazed and irritated by the many variations I see of my own name on the
      never-ending flow of junk mail that I receive every day.

      I have been looking for years for some information about my maternal
      grandfather, Adam Michalic (nickname S~kuta), who came to the U.S. sometime
      after 1918 from Orava. I have no information about his port of entry or the
      exact date of his emigration--just his tombstone proving that he is here for
      eternity. After spending many hours poring over hundreds of thousands of
      records and looking at many different possible spelling versions, I have just
      about given up ever finding anything more about him. I know it's a long
      shot--but if anyone happens to come across anything that would help while
      conducting their own searches, I would appreciate hearing from you.

      B. J.
