      >>> Velky Rakovec or Velky Rakovicz, of Zemplen province in Upper
      Hungary. <<<

      On the map, you have the following possibilities in the former
      Zemplen Megye = county:

      Velké Raškovce, Slovakia; formerly Nagy ráska, Zemplén, Hungary near
      Malcice
      Velký Ruskov, Slovakia, formerly Nagy-Ruszka, Zemplén, Hungary,
      northwest of Trebisov
      Rakocz now Rakovec nad Ondavou west of Michalovce
