I am trying to find anything I can regarding the above names. John Zubko(my Mother's father) and his sister, Anna Kadilak had a father John and his wife was Anna Sotak. John the son was born supposedly born in Hungary, February 14, 1893 and died around September, 1976. John had a niece by the name of Bertha Hromlack. They lived in the Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania area. That is about all I know about John and I don't have any information about my great grandmother, Anna Sotak.
The other name I am trying to find something about is Yankura (Yancura, Yankora, Jancura) which I believe their name had been changed when coming to the states. Anna Yankura (or possibly Mary Anna or vice versa) supposedly came from Austria but then I was also told she may have come from Slovakia. My mother had always thought that she was Sylvanian. Her family settled in the Uniontown, Pennsylvania area. She had a brother Albert, Michael, Steve and there was a Julia and may have been more. I heard that one of the brothers went to California to work on the railroad or something and became blind from an explosion. Some of the family also settled in McKees Rocks, Pennsylvania. My grandmother, Anna had 5 children, Margaret, Helen, John, Albert and Mary. Also, I believe that some of the Yankura family may be living in the New York area. I think one of the my Mother's Uncle's wife moved there when she was in her 80's to be with one of their children. Is there anyone who has any information in regards to these names?? Will appreciate any help at all no matter how small. Thank you.
