Fearless Females: March 19: Elusive or Brickwall Ancestor

March 20 — Is there a female ancestor who is your brick wall? Why? List possible sources for finding more information.


While, I wouldn't call her a brickwall, the female ancestor I'm currently trying to learn more about is my great-grandmother Borbala Manovsky Alzo. I posted a bit about her on the first day of the Fearless Female prompts (Favorite Ancestor).


I have a photograph of her (see March 1 post), learned about her from family in Slovakia, and have the record of her marriage to my great-grandfather. Most of my research will be with records in Slovakia - Greek Catholic Church records and other official documents. I hope to first obtain her death certificate, then go back to find any other available records.
