Bratislava. There are many C^ik and C^ikova in the directory. The "ovska"
sounds like a Polish or Russian feminine surname ending to me. I believe
in Slovak it would be C^ikova if her husbands surname was C^ik. The
diacritic mark above the "C^" means it is pronounced as "Ch". I also found
a C^ikovsky. The feminine form might be C^ikovska.
Can you post a scan of the name in the S-R file section so that we might
get a better idea of what it looks like?
