Surnames: Lippert, Kovarovic
I'm searching for information on my grandparents. Kovarovic's lived on Oak St in Johnstown and I know they came to US from either Czech or Slovakia but haven't found anything in the immigration records or ship records. They had to have arrived before 1914. Also searching for my any information on my grandfather, John A. Lippert and G-grandfather who's name I was told was Augustus but haven't found anything here either. Can anyone help, anything would is appreciated.

I believe I may have pictures of the Lippert headstones in the Johnstown Cemetery. I'll check when I get home.

I also saw a newspaper article that said Augustus Lippert was a wagon maker in Johnstown in December of 1889 listed as a juror in a trial.
He was also listed in another article as Supervisor of the second ward in Johnstown in 1899

If you go to Fultonhistory.com
It is an amazing website I just found out about thru a Sicilian mailing list I belong to.
It has indexed Newspapers from Upstate NY from I believe 1900 on.
I have found great family information that I have been searching for, for 12 years. I found most of the obits with dates, marriage announcemnts and family information. It is time consuming, but well worth it for me.

It may help you in your research.

Cheers,
Kathy

I believe this to be Anthony Kovarovic who lived on Oak Street. The date of birth is off by a couple of days but that has been seen before.

I am Anthony F.'s great granddaughter and Anthony J.'s granddaughter. My mother (his daughter) still lives in Broadalbin. I'm not sure she would have any more information for you than what is here. I never knew Anthony F. was born in Hungary. Where did that information come from?
