Am searching for ways to learn more about my Susko ancestors. My grandfather, Josef Michael Susko (b 18 Mar 1878) came to America in 1900 to join his half-brother Janus. They came from small farming village near Kosice. Some say the village was called Caklov. However my grandfather's ship registry listed his last place of residence as Cseklya which i cannot locate on any map. Is there a source to write to for assistance (preferrably one which can understand English)? Thank you in advance.
