Hi my name is Tomáš Svatek and I live in the Czech Republic. My grandfather is now living in Czech Republic too, but originali he was born in Slovakia (Czechoslovakia at that time) and his relatives went to America around the year 1900.
We know the names of those who left:
Jozef Somko and Anna Somko - I found some information abot them. After arrival to America they changed their names to: Joseph Somku and Anna Somku. They had two childrn Ethel Somku and Mary Somku.
There are next relatives named Henrik and Gyna (or Gina) Somku.
That's all I can tell... we are looking for any information and their address if they still live in Passaic.
I am interested in locating abstracts for Passaic County, marriage, land, probate for example.Abstracts of the records not the indexes.If you know of abstracts for Passaic County or New Jersey State please let me know.The records can either be available on the internet or printed in a book.I am having difficulty locating anything.Thanks for your help.
