RE: [S-R] Stara bystrica
Obersztrece is hungarian name for Stara Bystrica. This name was using during
pertiod 1867-1918. Before the period were using both names and after WW
there was using only the Slovak names. There were living only Slovaks and in
19th and 20th centuries a small Jewish community (less 200 people)
Skorvaga is in the region a common surname.. If you need any help in your
research I can help you with it. My daughters are translator to French
language (the eldest daughter graduaded university in Bordeaux) and they can
help you during your visit in Slovakia.
Have a nice week
