To all the researchers out there. I am desperately searching for more information and the existence of any relatives. My mother's name was Hanna Werner, born August 21, 1927/28 in Prague Czechoslovakia. Her father and mother were; Otto, born 28 April 1892, and Ester Werner, born Adler in Lodz, Poland 16 December 1904. Their last address was; Praha 1 Benediktska 2. The Grandparents and siblings of Ester Werner, nee Adler, were; Gerson Adler, born 11 May 1877 born in the Zdunska, Wola province of Lodz, Poland. His wife's name was Nach/Natalia Adler, born in Lodz, Poland 4 January or 23 December 1876 and their daughter Anna Adler, born on the 4 February or 3 December 1911, Lodz, Poland. I have very little information on my gr gr grandmother Natalie and her daughter Anna Adler. The son, Mosek Sljama (Moritz?) Adler, was born on the 22. March 1903 (Brezna). They lived not in Prague, but in Slany near Kladno. Natalia, Anna, and Mosek Sljama. Their last known address was; Praha XIV, Na zahonech 16. There was also an Ida Adler born 14 January 1909. She married in approximately 1930 a Jindrich Hoffman, born 25 September 1905. I believe they immigrated to Palestine and were the people who cared for my mother between the years of 1939 and 1947.

I am trying to find out information about my great grandparents. My grandparents came to the US from Slovakia (it was then called Austria-Hungary) in 1907 and 1909. Their names were Cirill Husarik and Maria Husarikova. Maria's parents were Stefan Husarik and Eva (Chechova) Husarikova. The last name supposedly came from the village where they were born, Husarikova or Husarikovci. My grandparent's last residence before coming to America was in Cadca (Csacza, Hungary) I think that is now in Slovakia. Is there a town called Husarikova and was it named after Russian horseman? Did some of the villagers raise horses? Do you have any information about when Stefan died and who his parents and Eva's parents were. My grandfather, Cirill (Cyril) came from the same village. He came to America with his brother, Janos. We have no information about his family and parents. We just know both grandparents had the same surname since they came from the same village.

My great grandfather John Kopscak Pavlik was born in the late 1850s presumably in Sambron, Slovakia at #9 since there have been Pavliks living at that address back into the late 1700s. He was married to Maria Szedlak around 1875 and fathered Peter 1874, Catharina 1876, and John or Jan on February 14, 1881. John's first wife Katarina died in the 1890s and he remarried Maria Dulya and fathered two more children, Anna and Stephen and later died in Sambron in the mid-twentieth century. John apparently shared the same residence with his brother Stephen who was married to Anna Kopcsak; they had at least 2 children, Maria and Stephen, Jr. His son, John, immigrated to Bridgeport, CT presumably December 20, 1898 on the Kaiser Wilhelm der Gross which left from Bremen, Germany. He was sponsored by a Slovak or Russian owner of a tool manufacturing firm in Bridgeport. His sister Catharina later emmigrated to Flint, Michigan. In 1901, according to Ellis Island records, a Maria (25), Anna (16), Maria (16), Maria (3) and Peter (9 mos) all Kopcsaks, immigrated to the US on the Barbarossa which left Bremen in June of 1901. Around 1910 my grandfather, John Pavlik, married Anna Kochis in Bridgeport, CT. He claimed that Anna was from the same village of Sambron. There are no records at Ellis Island for any Kochis family from Slovakia coming here during that time period so I am wondering if Anna Kochis was really Anna Kopcsak.

Margita arrived in New York on August 27, 1923 on a Holland-American ship called the "Rotterdamn".

Majtanyi name, ancestral village Majtanyi (northern Hungary) now Slovakia since 1918. I too am looking for our ancestral home of Majtan, Hungary (Slovakia now). My mother's grandmother was Countess Regina Majtanyi married to Count Juan de Mattos (of Spanish descent). Countess Regina Majtanyi was the daughter of Count Janos Majtanyi and Countess Ilonka Csontra. My mother, who was born in Budapest, Hungary in 1926 has given me this information. Six Majtanyi women were born between 1840 and 1860 of the union of Count Janos Majtanyi and Countess Ilonka Csontra. There were no male heirs thus the line died out. Regina - had 4 children Janka, Janos, Jozef, and Berta (Mattos), Victoria, Luiza, Emma, Janka, Margit. Regina's daughter, Janka (Johanna) was my mother's mother. Johanna de Mattos married Oliver Marosan in the 1880s. And my mother was their only child, Victoria Marosan. Mother came to American in 1944, at age 17, a displaced person. Who survived a labor camp in Germany. The whole family lost in the war and their ancestral home in Majtanyi destroyed. It is not certain, but the Majtanyi family originated in Northern Hungary which in 1918 became Slovakia near the Carpathian mountains. Am trying to find maybe relatives of Count Janos Majtanyi - hoping he had brothers or uncles etc. who had descendants. Any information you have would be ever so welcome.

Priganc and Volica are the last names I'm looking for. Anna Volica married John Priganc. I believe both are Carpatho-Rusyn. According to, Anna's father was Janhopta Volica. Anna came to the US (Pittsburgh, PA) the 2nd time (with her American-born children) in 1923 after living in Bila, Czechoslovakia. I don't know when she first arrived, but I think she was born in 1894. I have no information regarding John's family since he is not listed on the Ellis Island records (unless there was a misspelling on the records, which is entirely possible. My grandmother, his daughter, spells her last name Preganz, but her brother spells it Priganc). Visit the Priganc Family Facts Database.
