The Gulas/Gulish Family Found!
I started the quest to find my husband Tony's family in 2009 and by year end had finished my search.

The Gulas Family of Durkova, Slovakia immigrated to America in the early 1900's, they had 1 son born here~
John Gulish, nee Gulas. Soon after Valent & Maria Gulas, with John returned to Durkova. 
John came back & started his life here in America. 
Contact between the family stopped in 1968 when both Maria and John (mother and son) died on the same day. 
With just a postcard from 1945 & John's Passport & Immigration Records, I found the Gulas Family of Durkova, Slovakia. 
The day in October 2011 was an Amazing Gift to my wonderful husband Tony & especially his mother Cathy. 
The feeling of closeness was an instant connection. 
It will be a day remembered for a Lifetime.

Stretli sme sa s tým, ako dlho stratený RODINU!
o6.10.2011 - 
bol to krásny deň, pre väčšinu z nás. Dali sme s Tonym, manželka Deborah a ich história z doby okolo Prievidza. Dali sme do Stará Ľubovňa, kde žijeme. Aj keď sme videli, Tony a Deborah prvýkrát, zdalo sa byť, že "vieme" em dlhú dobu. 
Boli Takéto spontánne a priateľská, že "máme radi 'em od prvej chvíle :).

 Hovorili sme o našej rodine, pri pohľade na obrázky a uznávajúc, kto je tam ... a usmieva sa, s úsmevom, s úsmevom :))) 

Deborah je veľmi zábavný a sa nám to páči :) 
Po rozhovore sme išli do našej Ďurkov, kde "Tony" dedko žil. 

Za prvé sme cam babičke Anne guláš - stále žije v dome, kde Tonyho dedko John žil až do 18 rokov histórie. Keď je s Tonym a Deborah, bola veľmi vzrušujúca. Ich stretnutie, rovnako ako všetko ostatné bola plná emócií a radosti. 
Celú dobu si hovoril, že je pekná žena Deborah a pohľadný muž :) Tony je naozaj páčiť :). 

Po niekoľkých minútach vačkových Peggy - je Johnova sestra a je jej 80 rokov. Pozvala nás do svojho domu, kde pripravila slovenské tradičné jedlo. Vo svojom druhom dome čakal Peggy - manželku brata Johna. Viem, že to je zložité, je to pravda účel :))). 

Bola veľmi šťastný, že vidí 'em taky. Neskôr popoludní Tony a Deborah sa musel vrátiť v Prievidzi, a tak sme sa rozlúčili s 'em a pretože sme si pre tento vzrušujúci a úžasný deň :)

it was beautiful day for most of us. We met with Tony, his wife Deborah and their relatives from Prievidza. 
We met in Stara Lubovna where we live. 
Although we saw Tony and Deborah first time, it seemed to be, that we know them long time. 
They were such spontaneous and friendly, that we love them from the first time:). 

We were talking about our family, looking on the photos and recognizing who is there and...smiling, smiling, smiling:)))

Deborah is very fun and we like it:) After our talking we went to Durkova , where Tony´s grandfather lived. 

Firstly we came to my grandmother Anna Guľaš - she still lives in house where Tony´s grandfather John lived until his 18 years. When she met with Deborah and Tony, she was very exciting. 
Their meeting as well as all other was full of emotions and gladness. 
All the time she was saying that Deborah is pretty woman and Tony is handsome man:) she really like them:).

After few minutes came Peggy - she is John´s sister and she is 80 years old. 
She invited us to her house where she prepared Slovak traditional food. In her house was waiting second Peggy - the wife of John´s brother. 
I know it is complicated, but it´s true:))).

 She was very happy to see them, too. Later in the afternoon Tony and Deborah 
had to go back in Prievidza, 
so we said goodbye to them and since we remember for this exciting and amazing day:) 

They left us beautiful memories and we mentioned them very often. We hope to see them very soon!
