      Thanks Joe,

      I had no relatives on my father's side in America so althouh I heard
      the term stryko used occasionally,I didn't associate it with paternal
      uncles. I did have maternal aunts and uncles so ujko and tsetka were
      the only terms I used frequently. These were the terms used by rusyn
      villages in the Bardejov area.
