    Thank you for your help. My grandfather was listed as Zak Vassil in the 1910 census instead of Vassil Zak!

    Have you or any close family members taken a DNA test?  If yes, which company?  My AncestryDNA ethnicity profile is 91% E. Europe/Russia.  All 4 grandparents were born late 1800sin Austria Hungary.  Today their birthplaces are near Kosice, Eastern Slovakia and Uzhhorod, Western Ukraine.

    Some settled near Scranton, PA.  Others near Uniontown in Fayette County PA, and Westmoreland County PA.  I have two AncestryDNA matches to Family Trees with ZACK on them and two on Family Trees on My Heritage.  All distant 5th-8th cousins (6 to 20 centimorgans).

    Basil Dzak/William Zack (1872-1919) and Zuzanna Lukacs/Susan Lucas (1872-1933) were born in Vysna Jablonka , Zemplen Co., Hungary (Slovakia). Basilius Zak and Susanna Lukacs married in Scranton, PA on May 29, 1897 in St. Mary's Greek Catholic Church. Were any children born between 1897 and 1907? I cannot find the 1900 and 1910 censuses for this family. They had four children: Mary Zack Lepa (1908-1992), Anna Zack Luchko (1909-1977), John William Zack (1910-1977), Stephen John Zack (1916-1990). Both sons were PA State Policemen in the 1930s; did they father any children? William Zack (Zok) was killed in a coal mine accident on January 10, 1919. William, Susan, and Stephen were buried in Saints Peter and Paul Russian Orthodox Church Cemetery in Scranton.
