RE: [S-R] Lejskove, Czech-Slovakia
- Nothing by the exact spelling you mentioned, "Lejskove"
However, you may consider:
In Slovakia: presentp-day LIESKOVEC, SLOVAKIA, near Zvolen
Leskowec, Trencin - formerly Vagmogyorod, pop. 349 (probably about 70-100
houses. who's counting?)
Leskowec, Trencin Ujhelymogyorod, pop. 850

The surname Kondrc came from Brestovany located 31 miles ENE of Bratislava
and just east of Trvana and from Buc^any located just NE of Brestovany.
The Slovakia telephone directory lists 2 surname Kondrc under Trvana. The
surname Kuracina can also be from Brestovany. The directory lists 6 surnames
Kuracina under Bratislava.
Back in July 1998 I had researched surname Kuracina from Canada. There was a
Lawrence (Texas) and David (his brother in Canada) and a Peter (in Canada)
>From Predajná (Sk) Garampétri (H) and Jasenie (Sk) Jecenye (H) east
of Banská Bystricia, Slovakia.
One surname wrote had been told surname Kuracina meant 'chicken soup'.
Surname is derived from root word kura/kurc^a meaning chicken, hen.
In Slovak 'chicken soup' is slepac^ia polievka.)
Although my surname is similar there is no connection.
Don't believe they were related to the Endicott, NY surnames
The former surnames emigrated from Bratislava to Canada 1910-1919.
Believe that they never received a reply from any Kuracina in New York
A Dr. Elaine Kuracina and a another Kuracina who was a lawyer ?
