The Funeral of Emy Juliana Czismarczik

Has anyone seen this picture taken in Spisska Nova Ves c. 2 February 1898 or recognize the names Csiszmarcszik, Dajka, Papp and Wildner?

Several years ago I submitted these two photographs in hopes of contacting someone also related to these people who might help me with information to identify the people in the pictures. This didn't happen, but I did learn that the Parish Records for Spisska Nova Ves were available on microfilm through my local FHC.

And so I have spent the last three years researching my family lines and along the way gathering enough facts to identify the people in the two pictures which were sent by someone in Spisska Nova Ves to my grandmother who had immigrated to New York City in 1897.

The funeral of Emy Juliana Czismarczik

left to right: Carolina Wildner and her husband Ludovit Papp and their child, Vojtech and her daughter Anna or Erzsebet Krompaszky, In the middle is Maria Odusch, widow of Jan Wildner, and mother of Carolina. Next is Andras Dajka and his wife Erszebet Wildner also a daughter of Maria.

The girl in the coffin is Emy Juliana Csiszmarcszik, my grandmother's younger sister. Emy is the daughter of Martin Csiszmarcszik and his wife Juliana Paszti. Martin and Juliana died in 1886 and 1887, respectively, leaving four daughters ages 8,6, 4 and 2 to be raised by ? Juliana Paszti is the half sister of Maria Odusch, having the same mother, Ana Odusch from Lubice.

Below is a picture taken some years subsequent to the funeral picture of Emy Juliana Czismarczik. Same family members with the addition of some children.

The Family of Emy Juliana Czismarczik

This photo was taken some years subsequent to the funeral picture, and in it are the same people with the addition of several children. Having obtained the births and deaths of some of these individuals from the Archives in Levoca, I believe this picture was taken c. 1907.

left to right: The children of Andras Dajka and his wife Erszebet Wildner, Andras Jr., Mikulas and Josef, In the middle is Maria Odusch, widow of Jan Wildner. Next Carolina Wildner and her husband Ludovit Papp and her two older daughters, Anna and Erszebet Krompasky and their daughter Emma Papp. THe small girl in the middle is undoubtedly the daughter of Andras Dajka and his wife Erszebet Wildner.

Having identified these family members my hope is to locate their descendants still living in or near Spisska Nova Ves.


If anyone can help me locate my relatives I would be most grateful. Please email me.

Sincerely,

Fran
