The actual site of the home in which Joseph and brother, Michael, Mikler were born in Iliasovce, Slovakia in the 1800s. The building had long since collapsed when this photo of the site was taken in 1994, but small sections of the foundation can still be seen, as well as the creek which ran through the property. The memory of his birthplace influenced Joseph's decision to purchase land with a creek in Slavia in 1911. Colored print scanned on Epson 10000 at SLLC, April, 2012.
