I am Kathryn Trelc Watts. My great grandfather, Anton Trelc came from Austria in the late 1800's. settled in northeastern Penn. He too was a coal miner. Anton's wife was named Mary, the name Treltz was on her death certificate. Anton's second son, Anthony J. Trelc (coal miner, lumber man) was my grandfather, he had 4 sons and 2 daughters. His oldest son, Anthony P. Trelc was my father. We were always considered Slovenians. I have more info, My 3 uncles also have information. My father passed away in 1985. I would love to learn more about my family. I know that there are Trelcs in Slovenia today but do not know where or how to reach them. There is also a Trelz in St Louis.
