Hey Theresa! LOL -- to my knowledge we have not made any progress on this...

John listed Toscva as where he came from which is in Hungary. Frankly, I'm not holding my breath on any of this being true as we already know Kovach isn't Hungarian and her last name doesn't appear to be spelled correctly either... There was a Nicklosh Barnovsky on the same ship as John so MAYBE that is a brother of Genieve or whatever her name really was... Of other note... many also changed their name it Kovacs from something else as well so we don't even know for certain that John Kovacs wasn't something else... blah.

Genieve Bruinyovski

19832, b. 18 December 1862, d. 17 November 1956
Birth*       18 December 1862 Genieve Bruinyovski was born on 18 December 1862.1 Marriage*       circa 1886 She married John Paul Kovach circa 1886.



and I have:



First Name:
John
Last Name:
Kovach
Ethnicity:
Hungary, Hungarian
Last Place of Residence:
Tolesva
Date of Arrival:
Feb 02, 1898
Age at Arrival: 39y Gender: M Marital Status: M
Ship of Travel:
Kensington
Port of Departure:
Antwerp
Manifest Line Number:
0002





In general, I cannot find a thing about Genieve or even that Bruinyovski is her real last name... I'm not even sure that John Kovach which sounds very NOT Hungarian is even close. Any help on this? Seems they were in Tolesva? Genieve does not sound Hungarian either...





If even I could have a better guess at their real names that would help as right now I don't really think either is right....
