Valkovce or Vojkovce or Kalava?
>>> The family is Luthern, and we are looking at towns aroundPresov. Included is Kalava, Vajkovce, Vojkovce. On George Rabatin's
death certificate it lists the birth town as "Walkovec". Since we
are going to Slovakia on April 20th, 2006, any help locating Luthern
Rabatin's in Eastern Slovakia is appreciated. <<<
Are you still trying to figure out the correct village? Is it
Valkovce at 49°10' 21°32' or Vojkovce at 48°57' 20°52'. Kalava is at
48°56' 20°52' and is near Vojkovce. There is a mountain trail
between these two villages.
There are 20 Rabatin(ova) listed in area code 051 and 14 in area
code 053. Some direct hits.
