Seeking any info on the following surnames , Burianic,Buryanek, Suchanovsky, Kraislaik, Kron. They from an area near Bela, County of Spis Austria-Hungary and possibly Oujezd, Moravia


I am seeking any information on the above surnames . My Grandfather was Josef Burianic and he married Elizabeth Suchanovski(or sky) on Jan 16 , 1895 in the Catholic church in Bela , county Spis

Hello Richard:

Just wondering if you have tried searching the CGSI surname database—for example, you could type in ‘Bur’ (to search for the Burianaic and Buryanek permutations) into the surname box and search ‘starts with’ and then see who else in our CGSI membership is possibly researching the same.

Best regards,
Tony Kadlec

Thank you Anthony. I havent had a chance but will search through CGSI surname database. I appreciate your help. I just joined recently and hope to have more time to research
Thank you
Richard Burian

The surname Suhanovsky is extremely common in the village of LENDAK, former Spis County Slovakia. The LDS has the Lendak records on line. You might cross check her DOB with this village.

Alternatively, I can do a look up on this marriage. Let me know.
