1484Re: [SLOVAK-ROOTS] Re: GALOVICH from BRADISLAVA, HRANOBNICA
- Apr 30, 2000Hi Grace: Yes, Hull is in Quebec. I live in B.C., however, I did a quick check on
the LDS IGI site using just the surname Derouin and came up with a total of 43
listings, all in Quebec. It might be worth your while to have a look see
(http://www.familysearch.org/). If you are not familiar with this site, let me know
and I can give you some tips as to how to best utilize it.
As far as the surname 'GALLOS', I have been advised that the Slavic (Hungarian)
spelling for GALOVICH is probably 'GALOVIC', with the C pronounced as "ch" and I
feel confident that it is not associated with Gallos.
Best of luck in your search!
