Research notes Hello! I am trying to find more information about my Great Grandparents who immigrated from Zolinya to NYC in 1905/1906. They were 18/19 years old when they got to the US, and were married at 22 in Pennsylvania. I'm interested in learning more about the "push" circumstances of their immigration, as well as how they ended up in the particular coal mining town they ended up in (were there others from the same town that went there? Relatives? From same church?). My grandmother has been dead since 1997 and I was not allowed to know her very well as a child because my mother prevented it. I'm exploring a variety of leads and I am happy to have found this forum!
