Hi Zlatica, Its funny you listed Josef Tennussiak, as that was my great grandfathers mothers maiden name, I found out. Her name was Catherine Tenussiak. Anyhow, for the Zygmunts, that could very well be them. Lubatow could very possibly be her birth place. The Marya Zygmunt, it could be her that came in 1903. Her and Josef were married in NYC in Nov of 1904. The only thing about that listing is that I believe her date of birth was 1876, although I do realize that dates are not a big thing with them. The woman who gave me the copies of the church records from Lechnica found my great grandfathers date of birth as October 19. That is not a date that he ever listed. In his naturalization papers he lists his dob as March 15. I noticed that alot of Slovaks use that date as a date of birth. What is the significance of that date? Do you know? Anyhow, Jenos, I think was Josefs brother. And also he had a brother Andrew. But for the Zygmunts, I just don't know hardly anything.
