1930 — Trieste
Agnes is my grandmother. In 1930 she obtained a passport for herself (note: she is listed in Ellis Island as Vera Prudich, her actual Slovenian first name is Neza. She traveled to Pa with her 3 children, Joseph, Marija and Aloysius. Aloysius was Americanized to Louis,my father. Marija (Mary) left St.Marys for parts unknown and we have never found her or any of her descendants. It was quite a tribute for a 40-yr old non-English speaking to leave Hruskarja, Yugoslavia, go to Zagreb for the passports and on to Trieste to board the ship for the US. She was quite the lady.
