Looking for information about my grandparents' families. My grandfather Franciszek Jozef Zalot was born in Brzozow on 10.10.1896 to Jozef and Maria Zalot and emigrated to America (via Pennsylvania) in 1914. I know nothing about my grandfather's family, other than that they owned a farm in the area, and that cousins were born in the thatched roof home at least into the 1950s. Anything I could find out would be very, very helpful.
Also searching for information on Antony and Baraska (sp? It was also shortened to Baska, and occasionally listed as "Pearl") Krapko, my grandmother's parents. They were Lemko, emigrating from Galicia in 1900 and 1902, respectively. Their two eldest children were born before they emigrated. I assume the name could be variously spelled as Chrapko/Chrabko etc because it would have likely been in Cyrillic: they were "Greek Catholic", i.e. Uniate Catholic. Baraska's maiden name was Drahuszczak. "Tony" was born in 1872, Baska in ~1869.
