Looking for any information on the surname STOJAK,STOYACK,STOYAK, Georgy from Mestisko Slovenia Google map link -

http://maps.google.com/maps/ms?msid=200622827327429569926.0004bf7d3915581b90cdb&msa=0&ll=49.262543,21.581435&spn=0.002934,0.008256

According to the passenger lists and immigration records he immigrated to the US in Oct 1890 to Scranton, PA from Mestisko Slovenia/Austria Hungary and possibly had a brother John. He also was married to his wife Anna Uskanian or Juskanin from Rakovik Slovenia/Austria Hungary the next town over. Looking for any information on getting any records of the family from Slovenia i.e. church, birth/death marriage etc... I saw on the Google map that there is an older church in the small village of Mestisko and assume the is also one in Rakovick. Does anyone know what the tradition was at marriages? What town & church would the records of there marriage and family histories most likely be in the wife’s or husbands? Any infomation is greatley appreciated!!! Thank you all so much in advance for all the help! Edward
