Researching: ELCHIK, ILCIK, ILYCSIK, ILCILS
Several years ago I started work on my genealogy. I believe my ancestors (my grandfathers parents on my fathers side) emigrated from Michalovce in the late 1800's. Although my last name is spelled "Elchik", I have located local marriage certificates, baptismal certificates and burial certificates which spell the name "Ilcik", "Ilycsik", and Ilcils", respectively. It is possible and quite likely our name was Anglicized to "Elchik" after the family emigrated. Like others, it has been difficult for me to trace my ancestors back into Slovakia because of the language and the ever-changing politics of the region. I am considering enlisting the help of the Genealogical Research Society of Northeastern Pennsylvania to augment my own research. The first thing I would like to do however, is verify the name "Elchik" in order to build on the search. Do you have any suggestions as to how I would go about validating/verifying the name? Any pointers you could give me would be greatly appreciated.

His wife, Anna Peticky stayed in Slovakia to care for an ill child. Two sons and a daughter also came. Andrew Majercin (possibly Americanized to Majerchin), and Mary Majercin-Svetz settled in Streator, Illinois. My grandfather, Michael George Majercin, married Emilia Kacmar. They also lived in Danville, Illinois. Her parents were Michael Kacmar and Anna Kacmerak. I have no information regarding them. I have some information that they lived in Bratislava, but this is unconfirmed. I have recently made contact with a possible relative living in Prague, Czech Republic.

Hello from Colombia! The grandfather of my grandfather, was probably living at the frontier between Bohemia and Moravia. There was a traditional opinion in my family, that he immigrated to this place from Hungary, Slovakia, which was then (up to the end of the 1st World War) a part of Hungary. I know from a friend in United States, that our name does occur in Hungary and former Czechoslovakia republic. Do you have any information about the roots of my name? Please comment. Many thanks!
