Thank you for the reply! My Great Grandfather Franc Potisek (later changed to Potiseck) came from Brunadraga Austria Slovienia, St Martin, now I understand all except Brunadraga, I cannot find any information on where this was!

As far as Plahitko, I found my Great Grandmother Barbara Plahytka's passage to America in 1900 she came alone to join my Great Grandfather Janos Plahytka who was already here (can't find any immigration records on him). Later in 1911 an entire family came to America Josef (father) Maryanna (mother) Jan (9 yr old son) and Kataryna (4 yr old daughter) It is Kataryna that I am named after! So I beleive Josef was my Great Grandfathers brother. The church in PA that held all their records burnt a long time ago and no records survived, I remember my family telling me when my Grandfather John Andrew Plahitko moved to Indiana from PA he had to make a trip back to PA to try and get some proof of who he was and it was very hard for him to find anything convincing. They (or at least my Great Grandmother Barbara
was listed as Solveinia/Hungary/Bohemia. Thank you again for your reply!
