It looks like Michal died sometime between 1916 and 1921.  He also looks like he might have been a twin.  Never mind.  Michal and Mary are the same person.  But Paraska might be deceased in 1921.

1916 Paraska is not on 1921.  Mary is on 1921 and not on 1916

oh a possibility.  Thanks.  Sandra where are you from.  Im guessing Alberta, because you can look up so much.  It is really appreciated.  What I am trying to find out through this process is where my grandmother came from.  My grandfather did the naturalization papers in 1940 and women didn't need to do it, so all it says is she came from a town that says like Yuzanee, Austria.
