Havran Family of Udol, Slovakia & America

This family is part of my one-place study of St. Dimitry’s Greek Catholic (today Byzantine Catholic) Church parish, serving Udol and Hajtovka, Slovakia, covering the years 1827-about 1920. I will be sharing family records, roughly once a week, until all families in the parish are posted. Be aware that ages at marriage and death frequently don’t match baptismal records, when found. If you have ancestors who lived in these two villages and would like to receive an invitation to a shared Dropbox folder, please leave a comment and I will contact you.

One thought on “Havran Family of Udol, Slovakia & America”

  1. Thank you SO much, Linda, for highlighting our Hawran family! You have given us some exact dates that we didn’t have before and I have shared all of this with our family.

    It is amazing that you and I met in person a few years ago at the Jamboree in Burbank and we were just sitting chatting with others and I mentioned the village where my husband’s family came from in Slovakia. You nearly fell off your chair! We were meant to meet – I’m sure of it! Thank you for all the research you have done and transcribed for the Ujak/Udol village.
