Researching: BASSARAB, BOSSERAB
I was born with the name Bosserab (I think it a misspelling) but I was raised with quite another name. I would like to know my heritage. I have a love for a lot of European influences, culture and style. Apparently my father, John Bosserab/Basserab, came to Canada, married near Ottawa and had 5 girls and one boy. J. Bosserab is now deceased. I was the only one in the family to be adopted out. (No one knows why.) This has left me with many unanswered questions. My biological brother and sisters do not want to know me. I would at least like to settle the question about my heritage so I can pass on this information to my sons and grandchildren. This is of paramount importance to me. I would appreciate all the help you can give as to where this name originates and is settled today. I have found out so far that this is a proud name-one to be respected. Please help. Thank you from London Ontario.

Frances was born 18 September 1849 in Germany, and died 26 May 1922 in Hennepin County MN USA. Notes for Frances Taube: Informant of death was Gertrude Snitska, address 604 11th Avenue. Burial: 29 May 1922, Shakopee, MN; cause of death: acute cardiac dilatation with contributory myocarditis and hypertension. Children of Louis Schnitzka and Frances Taube are: 1. Joseph Frank2 Snitske, birth 25 March 1892, (Chaska) Shakopee, MN; death 19 August 1948, St. Cloud Hospital, Stearns County, MN. 2. Elizabeth Snitske, birth 1890; death possibly 1940 in Hennepin. 3. Gertrude Snitske, birth 28 February 1893, Shakopee, MN; death 16 February 1961; married James Setter. 4. Lillian Snitske, birth 1884, MN; married Bronson. Generation No. 2 Joseph Frank2 Snitske (Louis Francis1 Schnitzka) was born 25 March 1892 in (Chaska) Shakopee, MN, and died 19 August 1948 in St. Cloud Hospital, Stearns County, MN.

I came across this site, and hope that someone can help me to find information regarding my paternal great grandfather, Frederick Copenech. If you cannot help, someone may be able to advise me to another research source. My great grandfather was born in Fiume in 1857. Very little knowledge is available through my family, regarding when he came to Australia. It is thought that his surname may have been Anglicized at some time to Copenech, though this is not certain. Maybe someone can advise as to what the name may have been derived from, as I can find no reference to the name on my international searches. We have always believed the Fiume was in Austria, though recently I found that this is possibly not so. His father, I believe, was named Stephen William, and Stephen's wife's name was Hannah. They would have been married in Fiume or thereabouts, I assume. I don't know whether they came to Australia. I would appreciate any information/guidance you may be able to offer.

Researching: GALISIN, KOWCHAT, LUCSKA
My grandfather John (Jano, Johahn, Janos) Galisin probably Ruthenian, was born in Medzilaborce, present day Slovakia about 1878. He married Ila (Julia or Ilona) Lucska about 1907 in Medzilaborce in the Greek Church. We believe he came to Ellis Island on September 15, 1909 on the President Lincoln sailing out of Hamburg (Line #10 as Jano Galisin) to live with his brother Mihaly (Michael) Galisin in Port Reading, NJ. The 1910 census confirms he was living alone as a border with his brother Michael Galisin. The 1920 census states his daughter (my mother Anna) 3 years 6 months old and my uncle Michael 11 years old, are living with him now, but not his wife Ila (Ilona, Julia) - why? My mother says her mother died when she was about 3 years 6 months old in about 1919 at Elizabeth General Hospital, Union County, NJ. We don't know where she is buried in the Avenel-Perth Amboy area of Middlesex County, NJ. As we need the exact spelling of first and last names. I have a baptism certificate of my mother which shows her mother's maiden name of Ilona Lucska was born in the village of Ruskocz, Zemplen County which we believe is the village next to Medzilaborce presently called Roskovce. Can anybody confirm this? Would he and his wife who joined him about 1912/13 needed a travel document/permission of some sort to emigrate and where is it located?

Researching: FERREBEE, VEREBELY
From where in Hungary, could my great grandfather have fled with 2 brothers? The last name was changed in spelling to Ferrebee. After having spoken to a person from Hungary, he feels the original spelling could well have been Verebelyi due to the fact that there is no double "e" in Hungarian. Because no one would speak of (or knew) why the 3 brothers came to the USA possibly between 1850 to 1860. Although it was common knowledge that it was Hungary from whence they came, I've always been interested all my adult life where the possible origins of the "Verebelyi" ="Ferrebee" could have been. What do you think? I love mysteries and this is the biggest because it probably will never be truly answered. Visit the Ancestry.com Verebely Family Facts Database.
