Letters from the digital collection of Paul and Veronika Kovac materials

Digital copies of the original materials were obtained from the donors who continue to retain the letters in their possession. The copies included in the DIL project are used with the kind permission of the Kovac family residing in Slovakia. Paul T. Kovac immigrated to the United States in the early 20th century from Slovakia (before 1918 also known as Upper Hungary in the Kingdom of Hungary, part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire). He wrote letters to his mother Zuzana Kovac of Hradok, later his wife Veronika also wrote to her mother-in-law.
