Andy's parents were working-class Lemko emigrants from Mikó, Austria-Hungary (present-day Miková, Slovakia).
Andy Warhol was born on August 6, 1928 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, United States. He was a son of Ondrej Warhola (Americanized as Andrew Warhola, Sr.) and Julia (Zavacká) Warhola. Andy had two older brothers, Paul (Pavol), born in 1923, and John (Ján), born in 1925. Paul's son, James Warhola, became a successful children's book illustrator.
Ondrej Warhola, Andy's father, emigrated to the United States in 1914, and his mother settled down there in 1921 after the death of Warhol's grandparents. Their family lived at 55 Beelen Street and later at 3252 Dawson Street in the Oakland neighborhood of Pittsburgh. Ondrej Warhola died in an accident, when Andy was just thirteen years old.
