Hi there,
I was wondering if you should shed any light on our ancestry. We have a letter from my great grandfather, Justin Kostyal, which has been translated into English. It states he is from Austri-Hungary and is of "Noble birth of Tarno."

I've done a little bit of research and have discovered there was (is?) a Tarno area in Russia, but I also just stumbled across your last name. The letter dates back to the late 1800's when he came across on a ship.

Any info would be great! Thanks so much!
