<< I looked at the listing and Zavada
in Zemplen and Zavadka in Saros. Never knew there were others. Is there
one in Spis Co.? >>
Hi Joan - I thought there were just the one each but the Slovak Super atlas
made me aware of all of them - )This Atlas is 1:100 000 and has so many
communities that the regular maps don't have tho the 1:500 000 map is
terrific and has some 1,500 villages & towns listed.)
What is so confusing - in Spis~, there is one of each! There is a Zavada just
out side of Levoc~a in Spis~ and a Zavadka near Nalepkovo also in Spis~.
In doing the Slvoak Pride I noticed that many village names in S~aris~
also appear in Zempl�n or Uz~ so the clues on a christening certificate are
critical - tried to help someone with roots in Jastrabie - there are four
places in Slovakia with this name. A document from Slovakia had the magic
S~ar~. on it so we knew it was in S~aris~.
Also had a terrible time with Hanus~ovce - I thought sure a woman's roots
were in the Hanus~ovce that everyone knows - when the Mayor never heard of
her family we looked again and it turns out it was Spis~. Hanusovce - took us
a long time on that one - but it was all worth it when she found her family
