I am re-posting the same message below as I needed to re-register with My apologies for the duplication:

I am searching for anyone connected with or has
information about the following surnames: FIGLAR,
PLAVNICKY, HAVANICH. I believe my grandfather, Paul
Figlar, came to the US on September 6, 1923, on the
The Lancastria and settled in Bridgeport, CT. He was
33 at the time and came alone. A few years later he
sent for my grandmother, Anna Plavnicky, and 2
children - Paul and Steve. (My grandparents had 2
additional children once in the states - Marge and my
father, John.) I am fairly certain they were from the
village of Plavec in the Presov region in Slovakia.
My grandmother was 1 of 4 girls and 4 boys but my
family members believe that none of her siblings came
over to the US. So, the Plavnickys that I come across
back east may not be related to us. My grandfather we
think had 3 other brothers - Andrew, Stephen, and
Joseph. I am not sure what happened to them. When my
grandfather arrived he came to stay with Stephen
Havanich (brother?) in Bridgeport, CT (on Ellen
Street?). Thank you in advance for any assistance
anyone can provide. Best of luck in your search.
