Someone on the Hungary board has stated that her grandfather is listed on
his naturalization records as coming from "Obca Brococa." She also states
that he married someone from Bracovce. No one so far has been able to locate
Obca Brococa. Could the word "obca" be related to the Slovak word for
citizen? Could it be translated as "citizen of Brococa"? If so, could
Brococa merely be a garbled form of Bracovce (near Michalovce in Zemplin)?
Any other suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
