YURINA - My name is Jim Vajda and I live in Ohio in the USA. My brother and I have been tracing our Slovak ancestry for over a year. We have spent many hours and days combing records and graves. Here's what we know about our ancestors that immigrated from what is now Slovakia between 1888 and 1907. There are three separate lines that trace back to Slovakia, all from western Slovakia: Vajda, Somolanyi, and Jurina. - Vajda: Stephen Vajda, b. Aug 15, 1865 Csari, Nyitra, Kingdom of Hungary, Austria-Hungary, d. Feb 7, 1948 Ramapo, Rockland, New York, USA. Immigrated to USA about 1888-1889 (no immigration records found). He was a laborer in a pipe factory in Orangeburg, New York, USA. Parents: Joseph (or John) Vajda and Theresa Kormnorunif (unsure of spellings). - Somolanyi: Anna Somolanyi, b. 1868-1872 Kuklo, Pozsony, Kingdom of Hungary, Austria-Hungary, d. 1913 Rockland County, New York, USA. Immigrated to USA about 1892 (no immigration records found). Parents: Anthony Somolanyi and Theresa Voroh (unsure of spellings). - Jurina (or Yurina): The Jurina's immigrated separately but all ended up reunited in Rockland County, New York, USA. This leads me to believe that they probably lived together before immigrating, perhaps in Szottina, where Anna was born, or in Vittencz, where her grandfather Josef lived. - Anna Justina Jurina, b. Apr 6, 1898 Szottina, Nyitra, Kingdom of Hungary, Austria-Hungary, d. Jan 6, 1962, immigrated to USA Nov 18, 1907 aboard the S.S. Rhein from Bremen, Germany. She lived with her grandfather Josef Jurina of Vittencz, Nyitra, before reuniting with her family in Rockland County, New York, USA. Parents: Josef Jurina and Ustina Kumick. - Josef Jurina, b. Nov 15, 1873 Austria-Hungary, d. Mar 22, 1921 Nyack, Rockland, New York, USA, Nyack Hospital. Immigrated to USA 1904 (no immigration records found). He was a laborer in a pipe factory in Orangeburg, New York, USA.Parents: Josef Jurina and Katherine. - Ustina (Kumick) Jurina, b. 1877 Austria-Hungary, d. Apr 24, 1963.
