Thanks for the tip, but I went there in person last fall. I' know for certain my family were members there. But they told me I couldn't see the records because they are "confidential". This amused me since the records I want are 80+ yrs old! They asked me to leave names of my family members and my phone number, and never spoke to me again! I was really new at this back then and didn't have the nerve to follow up with them. But I guess I'll have to bite the bullet if I want any info. My folks lived at 1562 E30th St in 1910 and 20, and gr-grandpa worked for the steel mill. Where did your folks live? And do you know if one of the lodges in town was the "Slovak" one? Calling all the lodges is an avenue I haven't looked into yet, but suggested to me by the lady at the Slovak-American Club.
