Plahitko/Plahetka

Attached is the manifest from Ellis Island. These appear to be the same as those you mentioned; however, I am not 100% sure these are the "Plahitko" clan that now all reside in Indiana, USA. Jano was a nickname of my great-grandfather, but the Janos on the manifest is just too close a match to not be the same person, but the changing of the spelling is what gives me pause. I know names were really botched on manifests due to language barriers, but to have this whole strain of Plahitkos with Slovenia ties and a whole other clan of Plahetkas with Austrian/Hungarian/Slovakian ties makes me think there is a either no tie at all or it is a tie that got lost in translation through the years. If these folk are related to us, it will be well worth looking into.
