I'm currently researching my grandfather, Peter Gregor born 10-28-1899. On his social security application it says he was born in Hungary, but the family had been told it was either Czechoslavakia or Yugoslavia. He came through Ellis Island somewhere between 1906-1908 with his brother John, age 11, and his mother, Sussan, no age but maiden name Ferianz.
If anyone has any matches in their tree, I'd love to hear from you.

For Christine

Hi Emily--
Do you know if your family came through Ellis Island? My grandfather and his brother John came from Hungary around 1906 and they lived in New York afterwards. We could be related but I know almost nothing about my grandfather or his family....he left my mother and grandmother when my mother was around 9 (around 1943 or so) and she never heard from him again.

Thanks for offering to check with your great uncle, maybe we'll be able to figure something out. My grandfather's name was Peter Gregor born 10-28-1899, and his brother's name was John. Their parent's were John and Sussan.
If you could let me know what you find out I'd appreciate it. You can email me direct as if you like.

My paternal grandmother was Antonia Gregor. She emigrated from Bohemia (later called Czechoslovakia, now the Czech Republic) around the turn of the century with an older sister, Kohout. (I am not sure of the spelling).

She later married another Czech-American and was know as Antonia Tresek. She had two children from that Marriage, Blanche and James. Blanche had two children Russell Pesek and Joseph Pesek. Blanche and her sons are still living.

Antonia's first husband died in the Swine Flu Epidemic. She married my grandfather Anton Weber and they lived on a farm near Hale, Iowa, where my father, Theodore Weber, was born in 1923. They relocated to the Chicago area in the late 1920's or early 30's.

She died from an automobile accident in Denver, Colorado in 1968. She spoke almost exclusively in the Czech language. I cannot remember seeing her read anything that wasn't in Czech, so she may have not been able to read English.

hi christine,
maybe i can give you some help concerning the origin of peter gregor. in 1899 these thre coutntries were part os the austro-hungarian empire. this empire was divided in two halves: the austian one (cisleithanien) and the hungarian one (transleithanien). former yugoslavia (except serbia which was an independent state that days) were part of the hungarian half, so was slovakia. the area of present-day czech republic (bohemia and moravia) were part of the austrian half. mayby you came over some abbreviations during your research like KuK, K.k. or K.u.
KuK (kaiserlich und koeniglich) means imperial and royal, referring to all matters concerning the empire. K.k.(kaiserlich koeniglich) means imperial royal, referring to all matters concerning the austrian half of the empire and last but not least K.u.(koeniglich ungarisch) means royal hungarian, referring to all matters concerning the hungarian part of the empire. if you can find one of these abbreviations on an old document it may help you determing the origin.
