Klimek Family Genealogy Forum
my paternal grandmother's mother maiden was klimik (klimikova for female). she was from eastern slovakia.
use the spelling variations & don't forget to add -ova if the person is czech, slovak & some russians. poles don't use that ending.
also, different countries had ahold of that part of the world so also check the records for : austria-hungary, poland, ukraine & czechoslovakia. some people didn't want to be associated with a certain national origin (the country that ruled at the time), so the changed it. example: at an USA port of entry, one's paper's may have read what country they were from & listed as their nationality but it was not. so read a little history of that part of the world - it helped me tons !!
