In Reply to: Doles-Slovenia by Milton Doles of 56

Hello, Milton. My grandparents, Frank and Mary Doles came to the United States from Slovenia and lived in a very small town (Verona) in Western Pennsylvania for the remainder of their lives. Have letters from my grandmother's niece, Christine. Believe they are from the city (Potjna sp?) you mentioned in your posting. Just saw your note today while searching after I read an e-mail from a woman who found info on her mother's homeland/birth by using "google." A friend from church went to Ellis Island and found family history information about his grandmother. I've wanted to go for some time and now, hearing that there are 57 Doles listed there, I'll have to go. Do you belong to the SNPJ? (National Slovenian Society) We've tried to find information through them because my grandparents' papers were washed away in the Great 1936 Flood.
