Just a guess - Kobyly - it's in Saris and at one time a part of Kosice was in
Saris. I went way out of my way one time to take a prayer book there from
an elderly lady to her relatives so the name is "ingrained" on my brain.
Sorry for the pun.

- I know this topic has come up on the list before, and now I need to know:
a young (early 20s) Slovak relative has asked me about summer jobs in the
US. I thought I saw a post in just the last couple weeks, in which someone
mentioned a URL about this (green cards?), but I've gone through those
posts this weekend and can't find it now; also, didn't someone several
months ago mention an organization to avoid--some group that promises to
find jobs or something, but isn't quite legal...my memory is pretty vague
on this one.
Any suggestions or advice appreciated; personally, I can't imagine how
she'd come out very far ahead with just a summer job, once she subtracts
airfare and living expenses...and I'm trying to figure out if she's hinting
to stay with my family (and I don't have a guest room, and whole bunch of
etceteras!). But I want to give her all the information she needs.
Oh, and before I forget...official announcement: I'm going to
Slovakia!!!!! My oldest daughter and I are joining one of Helene's summer
tours, and there are no words in any of the languages I've studied, and
probably not in Slovak either, that describe how excited we are! My
husband asked me what I wanted for a Valentine's Day present, and I told
him I wanted to go to Slovakia....18 years of marriage to me, and he still
hasn't learned to be careful what he asks.... And then the night after I
sent off my deposit for the trip, I dreamed I was adopted, and all this
genealogy and history I've been doing had nothing to do with me, after
all...talk about a nightmare! My kid sister tried to allay my fears,
pointing out that I have our mother's total lack of subtlety so I must be
my parents' true child...gee, that was comforting....
Thanks in advance for any advice on the job question (I guess it's also a
- I'm sorry--I sent the post on summer jobs to the wrong list--I meant it to
go to Slovak World and I hit the wrong address in my address book!
