Kevesliget is Kevice in Slovakia. The Hungarian word "liget" translates to
"grove, wood, grounds, woods". Dargov was Dargo from 1863-1913, Dargov
1920-1948, Drahov 1948-1964, and now Dargov. The "g" can have an "h" sound
in Ukrainian and I believe eastern Slovakia. Which surnames are associated
with which town?
