Hi my name is Alissa Kurys Johnson great granddaughter of Hnat Kursyz. I came across your name on a google search for my great grandfather. my family has just started researching the family.
Hnat had 3 children Helen, Dorothy And Peter. Peter was my grandfather. He passed 8 years ago. Hnat died in 1971 he is buried in Greenwood cemetery in Brooklyn NY. In our search we saw that Hnat and your grandfather sailed together on the same ship from Germany. We have just started getting documents on Hnat we have copies of the ships manifest which shows both hnat and Jakiw's names on it. I can send them to you if you would like.
