I am researching the family of John (aka Johann) Hohla (aka Chochla and Chockla)(1885-1972). He immigrated to the U.S. in 1910, listing birth location as Bereska in Austria and his nationality Ruthenian. According to the 1930 U.S. Census, he was born in Poland, as were his father and mother. Both he and his wife speak Russian. He lived in Cambria County, Pennsylvania. He was a coal miner in Bens Creek, Pa. in 1942. He is buried at Sts Peter & Paul Byzantine Catholic Church in Portage, Pa. His wife was Miluska (aka Mildred, Amelia, Millie) Horchak (1893-1930) , also from Bereska. It appears that other Chockla family members immigrated to the same area in Pennsylvania. I would like to compare notes to gather more information on this family.

Portage, Pa

Are "Chokola", "Czokalo", etc. related by chance?

There is a branch of my family named Baran who lived (still lives) in Patton, PA, not far from Ben's Creek. My grandparents are also buried at Sts. Peter & Paul Byzantine. I will email you.

I'm hoping someone on here can help me out---I have been trying to figure out my maternal grandfather's genealogy for years now, however we have had little to no information about his extended family. His name was Michael Warchola, 1922-2010. He was born in Nanty Glo, PA, and served in WWII, but was registered under the name Mitchell. His birth certificate shows that his name was indeed Michael. This is also how I found out about the town of Berezka. His father was also Michael Warchola, 1884-1933, and his mother Anne Chokla (1890-1967). Anne later married a Sabol after my great-grandfather's passing.

My grandfather was one of 10 siblings, as far as I know. Mary (1911) Steve (1917) Catherine (1918) Anna (1920) Michael (my grandfather, 1922) Peter (1925) Rose (1928) Julia (1929) Jennie (1931) and Betty Jane (1933). There has been some suspicion of another sibling, an older brother, that integrated with the family and then returned to Europe. We have no concrete evidence of this though.

I'd appreciate any help that I can get. Please contact me by email if you can help in any way:
