I wrote to the National Archives for the passenger ship records of Kristina Szakasits’ and Mary Schepper’s immigration to America, but the search came up empty. The National Archives sent me the records of a Kristina Szakasits who traveled to the U.S. on June 14, 1913, from the Havre aboard the S.S. Chicago, arriving at Ellis Island on June 24, 1913. Those records say Kristina and Johann Szakasits were going to stay with Johann’s cousin, Franz Szakasits, in Passaic, NJ. But Kristina Szakasits appears to be the married name of the woman in those records (her husband was laborer Johann Szakasits from Güssing, Hungary), so this was a different woman, it seems (perhaps a cousin of Kristina’s).
Kristina was Joseph Lasica and Kathleen Lasica Schiro’s maternal great great aunt (mother’s mother’s mother’s sister).
