It’s hard to believe we are already half way through 2022 and this weekend is the last weekend of June. It’s also time for Saturday Night Genealogy Fun with Randy Seaver.
Here is our challenge:
1) Who is in your paternal grandfather’s matrilineal line (i.e., the mother of your paternal grandfather, and her mother, etc.)
Because this is part of the Rusyn branch of my family tree, where records don’t extend back any further than the early 1800s, this will be an extremely short post for me.
George Kucharik, aka Sabo (1893-1936) is my paternal grandfather.
His mother was Maria Kacsenyak (1859-1926) who married Stephen Kucharik aka Tomko aka Sabo in 1877 in Vsyna Sebastova, Slovakia.
Her mother was Anna Haluska (1832-1899+) who married Michael Kacsenyak (1834-1899+) in 1858 in Ruska Nova Ves, Slovakia.
Her mother was Maria Hovance (c1795-?1834+) who married Andreas Haluska before 1831.
That’s it for my grandfather’s matrilineal line.In fact, if Anna had been born just a few years earlier, I wouldn’t even know the names of her parents.
There are no earlier vital records and my ancestors were peasant farmers who didn’t own anything that needed probate.
Thank you, Randy, for this week’s challenge. It was definitely a quick one for me.
