Your husband's Mom (Polly) is my Mom's first cousin. My Mom is Amy Kovacic. The last time I saw Polly was at the Penko family reunion in Somerset about 5 years ago. Were you there? I was speaking to Frank & Glenna Penko last night, because my sister Susan will be traveling to Slovenia & Italy for vacation later this week and wanted some info. The Penko's are having another reunion late July. I would have liked to go, but it's not going to work out.

I believe that Mary Penko had her sister Margaret come to Colorado from Slovenia and set her up with Jacob Kovacic (my grandfather). He was a coal miner (of course!). My mom had an older sister (Albina) and a younger brother (Jack). The family moved from Somerset to to Cle Elum, Washington when my mom was a few years old. Both my Aunti Binki and Uncle Jack are now deceased.

Are you still in Pennsylvania? There must be a bunch of cousins there. My Mom is 86 and her memory is not very good these days. She told me a long time ago that when her Uncle Frank's wife died, he left all his kids in Pennsylvania and moved to Washington state. It also sounds like Ursula must have been Mimi Polh's mother.

My e-mail is and phone is 415-716-4268 if you ever want to chat.
