hi, I can tell you I just found my great grandmother's record on ellisisland.org, Mari Kadi emigrated with her sister Verona Kadi and their cousin Rozi Horvath in 1903, Mari was 22, Rozi was 20. They listed their destination as Frank Horvath in New Brunswick, NJ (Rozi's brother). Their village was Csot, which is only minutes from Papa, so they could be the same family. I can tell you the spellings are altered alot, ellis island has Csot spelled as Csoth, so I at first couldn't find it anywhere til someone told me the correct spelling.

And the spellings are wrong for many reasons, either the transcriber can't read the writing, or the person giving their name might have americanized it, or it could have even been a language barrier. On the census, my great grandmother became Mary Kadi, so I have no idea which is correct. Frustrating, especially when there's noone alive to ask! :D
