      Risko and Bodzer were listed on their declarations of intention were from
      Drahova, and kevesliget and also Chumalov. Also on the ship manifest it said
      the language for Risko was Ruthenian

      the Monyak or Manyak name was from 'austria-hungary'and they were called
      'white russians' one city was Bukavena too.

      Limiting the search to towns in Slovakia, the closest I could get to
      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?
