With the help of distant cousins a few years ago, what was then a new hobby really took off. My success has mostly the result of having been fortunate enough to find people willing to share information and learning how to research myself. This particular surname was taken from Zborov records that I got from Trish Kropiewnicki. You may find her throughout the message boards and is one of the most knowledgeable researchers I've come across.
I see that she has been in contact with Rich, from this site and there may be a conflict with the Susanna Rubaczky information. I hope to one day confirm one way or another.
As you may see from other messages, my grandmother was born in Zborov. My mother and I plan to visit in the future. I have no photos of anyone beyond my grandmother on my Slovakian side. Other surnames from the old country for us are listed below.
Thank you for your response. Trish, if you read this........contact me.
