Surnames: Golla, Gola, Golya
I'm look for anyone who knows of Golla's from the Austrian area. My grandfather Michael was born in Austria in 1864. I'm finding 3 different spellings of his last name. One is Golla. The other two are Gola and Golya. I know he was born in the Carpathian Mountains in the time of the Austro Hurgarina Empire and spoke Russian. If you know of any Golla's that were from thid are please contact me.
Thank you

Your ancestor was Ruthenian. He did not speak Russian even though it sounds a little bit like it.

GOLYA is Hungarian spelling as Hungary ruled present Slovak Republic where village Pcoline is in the Carpathian Mountains.

Thank you for your help. I never new that my grandparents were not speeking Russian. I always though that because they read and wrote in Russian that that's what they spoke. I have used the Russian alphabet to reed some of their things. Also have you ever heard of the name Yabor, that was my grandmothers name and she also came from Hungary

You're welcome.

Please check on your other posting as I have left some more information for research for you.
Your ancestors did use Cyrillic alphabet.

Where was the ancestor YABOR born? Same village, Pcoline?
The English Y is a J sound in Slovak so the surname will start with J. Not finding JABOR there. You are sure of the spelling?

The only I have is my father's papers which states her as Maria Yabro. I have no other paperwork on her except death certificate which gives her madin name as Maria Yabor and her father as Wasil Yabor. My father always said that her name in english would be Harbor.

Thanks

You're welcome.

Your father's church baptismal record should have the information. The death certificate is as correct as the person knowing the information.

Did find several YABORs arriving NY EI. Have you taken look at the manifest?
Yabor, Andronik Klafo 43 1861 1904
Yabor, Josef Khesso Fobada 39 1863 1902
Yabor, Nihaly Poracs 18 1881 1899 [his surname looks more like GABOR]
Yabor, Vlajh Drossey, Hungary 3 1904 1907

I have check Ellis Island and every site I can find. There is no Maria or Mary Yabor anywhere. She come to this country in 1896 and married my grandfather in 1897.

Again thanks for all your help.

It is possible she came thru other port than Ellis Island.

Have you looked for their church marriage record? It should have a place of birth.

Was your grandfather from old country as well? From where?
It is easier to work from location than with a surname that is not in its original spelling.

My grandfather was Golla the one you helped me with. As for the church records in this area of PA during the late 1800's and early 1900's their was only church and one priest in the 40 mile area to serve the Greek Catholic community. Their records are bad. As for their papers, when they passed it seams as if one of the children got rid of them. You are realy great to spend so much time on my problem. My grandparents died before most of their grandchildren were born, so this is our way of trying to get to know a little of what they were like. My family was trilled just to know the village where he came from. I have started my mother's side and her brother kept all of the paper work and it is so much better, we are now back as far as our great great grandparents.

again thanks so very much

You're welcome.

What about the first child's baptismal record? Anything there?
OK, so GOLYA/GOLA was married to YABRO/YABOR? Did I get that right? If yes, it is possible that they were both from the same region, religion [few exceptions] but for sure one common language to communicate in and same traditions to observe.
info about Pcoline. No website and village has 583 inhabitants.
