My paternal Grandmother's maiden name was Anna Kalisek. [I think] she was born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania where she lived on the Northside and then, after her marriage to Michael Laslavic, she lived on Ley Street in the Troy Hill section of Pittsburgh.
As far as I can tell from the family cemetary, her father was Thomas Kalisek, and he was born in 1844, possibly in the United States (Pittsburgh?), but maybe in Bohemia (now the Czech Republic). Thomas Kalisek owned a "shop" (maybe a grocery store) on the Northside of Pittsburgh.
This is all that I know about this side of the family. If you know any more, please e-mail me. THANK YOU.
