Looking at the Ellis Island records site, a bunch of Bankos' families came to America around 1900 from the village of Slovenska Ves [=Slovak Town], at that time called Szepestotfalu, in former Spis County.

thank you for your responses.. what did u find that information? what websites are you using? John, Mary, Frank, and Berthe/Bertha Bankosh and Burkis/Burkas.. to just name a few... John got his citizenship in the US in 1922.. obituaries say they were born in Austria and Hungary in 1890 - 1910?

You're welcome.

You should request John's naturalization intent & petition as it will have his place of birth.
http://www.archives.gov/research/naturalization/index.html
Your ancestor's social security form SS-5Form should have his place of birth and parents names.

John could have come thru an US port as Janos, Jan or Johann. Did you look in www.ellisislandrecords.org Any one of the BANKOSs and BANKOSZs related to your ancestor?

BANKOS^ in Slovakia's phone book

No BURKIS or BURKAS surname in Slovakia.
BURKAS arriving NY Ellis Island from Rokamezo, Hungary now Lysychevo, Ukraine.

I want to say that your reply is only to me and not to the previous poster, marksabol21

There is a Bankos family in Buffalo, NY in the 1910 census:
Janos age 30, married once for 9 yrs, emigrated 1904
Barbala age 28, married once for 9 yrs, no emigration info
Janos age 8, Mary age 7, Frank age 4, Eleanor age 2, all born Austria-Hungary; Katie age 1 month, born New York.

If this is the correct family, Borbala and the kids emigrated on the "Pannonia", arriving in NY 25 Jun 1909:
