My grandfather came to America in 1906 to Lebanon, Pa to a cousin named Stefan Peckovszky. I'm trying to find out more about this family since they were the only relatives he had in the US.

They came over in 1904/1905 spelling the name Peckovszky. Went to Wilken (Wilkin?) St. in Lebanon. They brought once child with them, Paul.

In 1910 They lived in Nortn Cornwall Township. The name was Betzoskey. Besides the parents. Stephen and Juliana and son Paul, there was Anna and Joseph. Anna was 5 and Joseph less than a year.

1920 they were in Berks County, Bethel Township. Betsokaski. Still a farmer. Another, John, is 3.

By 1930 they were in Jackson Township, still farmers. Paul and Annie are not there -- I assume married. Son Joseph is 21 and works at the Steel Mill. Son John is 13.

There must be birth records for these children. I'm fairly sure they were Lutheran so there should be baptisms somehwere.

Does anyone have any suggestions? Places to call? to write?
