My Gr- granfather John Chmelik, in his obituary has a Marie Cermak listed as a relative. If you would like a copy feel free to contact me at my e-mail address. His mothers maiden name was Budilovsky. He was from Bohemia

Following your queries to see if you might have listed some bit of information in other posts.

Surname JURKOVIC' lists in Jihomoravsky obvod of CZ.
The English Y makes the Slavic J sound so that is why your ancestors surname starts with Y instead of J.
428 JURKOVIC's passed thru Ellis Island. Do you have a name of a town for your aunt who passed thru EIlis Island?

A JURKOVIC' listing in Male Levare's phone book and much more Jurkovics in Velke Levare.

To locate an Ellis Island in One Step and especially when you know a name of a village use :
From Male Levare came 14 people, from Male Lavary 2, from Levare 17, from Kislevard 66, 1 from Klein-Schutzen, and 49 from Kis Levard.
Take a look at Csermak, Ruzsa, Rozsa, and Jurkovics. That would be the Magyar / Hungarian spelling of C'ermak, Ruz'a and Jurkovic'. Some of Jurkovicss were from N.Levard which is Nagy Levard aka Velke Levare.
The old 1910 Hungarian megye map is at :
The town of Nagy levard is in Pozsony megye.

Your welcome.
The only way to find out if they are your distant relatives is to send a letter with family information.
You would only need to send three letters, 2 to RUZAs and 1 to JURKOVIC.
