Kollar, Andrew - Lu'ka, Hungary

I am needing MUCH help finding ancestors for my paternal grandmother. She was Anna Mae Kollar (Kohler) Rakocy, born 14 Sep 1898 in Luka, Hungary (though she always put Budapest, Hungary down as her birthplace) and died 5 Nov 1989 in Youngstown, Mahoning County, Ohio. Grandma married Joseph Rakocy (s/o John & Mary Grunik Rakocy) on 21 Jun 1921 in Youngstown. The new Mormon site (ellisislandrecords.org) has opened which has posted ship passenger manifests during the late 19th - early 20th century. My uncle found my grandma listed with her mother and a brother as arriving in June 1900 on the "Palatia". The manifest lists Susa (probably should be Susan), age 24; Janos (John) age 2 1/2; and Anna, age 1 year. The manifest had listed as the place of birth, Luka, Hungary. I've checked on "Lu'ka" and believe it to be near Bratislava, Slovak Republic. Anna's father was named Andrew Kollar. The maiden name for Susan Kollar was Ignatz or Ignas. Family tradition has that these Kollars were Protestant which was unusual for that part of Europe. Can anyone direct me? Is anyone familiar with the Kollar name in that part of Europe? Any help will be very much appreciated.
Thank you,
Diane Rakocy Carter
