Jamie, I would LOVE to help you. I am greatly interested in the northern Illinois Gorniks but have not been able to make much progress. I tried to find Guenstei, Austria and was unsuccessful. I have four Gornik lines, not yet related to me, who have three generations of Johns - and my own Dad was James. Please feel free to write to me directly and give me an idea of date ranges for birth/death/immigration. What chance is there that your ancestors were Slovenian and that the records you're looking at were created during the Austro-Hungarian Empire where EVERYBODY was from "Austria"? It would depend on the dates. Do you have alternate cities, villages, parishes or towns? Thanks for the contact. Keep in touch.
