  1. I believe Alex\’s grandfather, Alexander Bavolack, was brother to my grandfather, Daniel Bavolack of McAdoo, Pa. We are descendants from a modest clan whose ancestors go back more than three hundred years in the villages of Kotan, Swiatkowa Mala, and Swiertsowa Rus\’ka, in the Beskid Niski (low mountains) of the Carpathian range in southeastern Poland.
