My father, Ignac Klein was born in Dolne Oresany, went to schools in Trnava and Nove Mesto nad Vahon, and emigrated to the U.S. in 1922. His mother, Julia Suran, was born and married in Stvrtok near Trencin, and was buried alongside her husband, Adolf Adam Klein, in Sucha nad Parnou. Five of Julia's children died early in childhood and were buried in Horne Oresany. Adolf's sister, Netti Klein, married Salamon Grunhut from Laksarska Nova Ves. Two of Netti's children, Heinrich and Leopold, emigrated to the U.S. at the beginning of this century. They changed their names to Henry and Leo Greenhut. My father's brother, Markus, and his wife, Frieda, lived in Malacky up until 1949. I have been unsuccessful in researching Bertha and Armin Kohn, and Elsie and Julius Diamant/Diamont, all of whom emigrated in the 1920's to New York from Slovakia.

My father's parents immigrated, I believe, in 1900. His father's name was Paul (?) Yanko, and nine children were born to that generation, all of whom are now deceased.The first eight were born abroad, and my father, William Yanko (also called Vasily) was born in Snyder, NY (?). The family settled in Berwick, Pa, and most lived there all of their lives, but at times some worked in Pittsburgh, in Hammond, Indiana, and in other places in New York state. My father identifed himself as "Rusin" from somewhere east of Uzhhorod. My mother's maiden name was Mary Kucera. Her mother and father immigrated about 1908, and my mother was born in Taylor, Pa (?) in 1910. A year later, on the death of her father, the family moved back to Ruthenia, as they called it. My mother used to mention a village called Maly Berezni. With the onset of war and famine, my mother was sent back to the United States to live with an uncle's family in Scranton, Pa, named, I believe Mikita. Her brother and mother remained in the village. I believe her mother, Anna, was lost during the second world war. Her brother, John Kucera, lived on in that region. His two children, a son and daughter, I have heard, removed to Moscow, but this is not verified. If anyone has any information about either of these two families and their origins, I would be grateful to hear about it.

Searching for info on grandmother's maiden name Veronica Zygmuntovich and her mother's maiden name Domion from the Spis region of Slovakia or Black Hills area of Slovakia. Veronica came to this country through Ellis Island around 1888. The last names could have different spellings. We know her brother Jacob shortened his name to Zigmund.
