Surnames: Soroka
I have a Floriak (spelling per census) Soroka Married to a Helen or Ellen with 9 children Mary, John, Andrew, Ann, Stephen, Michael, Olga, Vera, Thomas. All Children were born in Pa between 1909 and 1928. They lived in Throop, Pa on Meade St. Census says Floriak and Helen came from Russia in 1907. He was a coal miner. I have just started researching this line and am looking for any help I can get.
