Do we have any other NEPA Slovaks on here?
My Dad’s entire family, except for his grandfather on his mother’s side (Polish) and his great grandfather on his dad’s side (Galicia, Poland) were Slovaks, from the best we can figure out so far. The males, for the most part, were all involved in the coal mines. They’re from the Freeland & Upper Lehigh area of NEPA, to be more specific.
These following surnames are linked to my family: Shemo (my last name), Makuta, Punjack (Pundzak appears to be the original last name), Budosh (Bujdos appears to be the original last name), Masley, Ondeck & Yedinak.
I look forward to chatting with everyone!
