20870Re: [S-R] Machut
- Nov 1, 2008Unfortunately, I have just picked up on this thread. But I have this for this page.
Sarriske Jastrabie is familiar to me since I drive through it on the way to my ancestral village of Hromos not far away.
http://www.cisarik.com/map-8c.html is a page of a map Eastern Slovakia that you can click on the name of a village and get information. On the Sarriske Jastrabie page two current surnames there are Macura and Macurova. There is a list of surnames from the 1822 Greek Catholic church, it lists a Macsur. This seems to confirm your husband may still have family there.
I did not understand what is being asked about Machut(ova). Which seems to be a surname and not a village name. The Fuzzy Gazetteer for Macura only offered Magura, Slovakia. Which is much further south than Sarriske Jastrabie.

>>> My husband's family was actually Macura (I'm not certain if that'ssupposed to be MaÇura---I think it is pronounced "matzura"
or "Makzura") Anyway, they were from Sarriske Jastrabie.<<<
Closest I could find was Machut(ova). However, these seem not to be
near S'arriske Jastrabie.
Ellis Island shows Macut from Macuti, in Croatia.
I love a mystery.
