Susan

Michael in English, Mihaly in Hungarian, Michal in Slovak
Andro (Andrew) would be Andrej/Ondrej in Slovak
The English Y makes the Slovak J
Kraynick sounds like it might be KRAJNIK and Kraynock as KRAJNAK. If Michael/Michal and Anna married in "old country" than the villages would be within 10 miles radius of each other. Technically, your ancestors should have put down Hungary-Slovak and not Austria-Slovak.

Was there ever a mention of a megye/region in any papers that you have like Zemplen, Saros, Szepes?
