      There is a village Vel'ke' Ras^kovce in Zemplin.



      In each of the following period it was known as:

      1808 = Welke' Rasskowce

      1873-1882 = Nagyraska

      1888-1913 = Nagyra'ska

      1920 = Vel'ke' Raz^kovce

      1927 = Vel'ke' Ras^kovce



      Try this one on for size.

      I am trying to track down the ancestral village of my
      great-grandfather, Michael Cralley (originally Kraly), who emigrated
      from Hungary around 1880. We have no family information about the
      Kraly family, except that Michael's sister, Barbara Kraly married John
      Yuhasz (originally Juhasz), who also left Hungary around the same time
      for England, and then the U.S. We are hoping that the Kraly family
      came from the same or a nearby village as the Yuhasz family. The
      Yuhasz family history shows them coming from Velky Rakovec or Velky
      Rakovicz, of Zemplen province in Upper Hungary. Is this town the
      present-day Rakovec nad Ondavou in the Kosice region of Slovakia?
