    That is because the map has Hungarian names and Velky Rakovec is Slovak. It is all the same village. Janet _____ From: SLOVAK-ROOTS@yahoogroups.com

      I looked at the 1910 Map, http://lazarus.
      <http://lazarus.elte.hu/hun/maps/1910/zemplen.jpg>
      elte.hu/hun/maps/1910/zemplen.jpg , of Zemplen. There Raknovec nad Ondavou
      is identified in Hungarian as Rakocz, but not Velky. On the map is a yellow
      area. You can see the town Nagymihaly (present day Michalovce). Follow the
      latitude line under Nagymihaly to the left to a road. The first town up the
      road is Rakocz.

      I am trying to track down the ancestral village of my
      great-grandfather, Michael Cralley (originally Kraly), who emigrated
      from Hungary around 1880. We have no family information about the
      Kraly family, except that Michael's sister, Barbara Kraly married John
      Yuhasz (originally Juhasz), who also left Hungary around the same time
      for England, and then the U.S. We are hoping that the Kraly family
      came from the same or a nearby village as the Yuhasz family. The
      Yuhasz family history shows them coming from Velky Rakovec or Velky
      Rakovicz, of Zemplen province in Upper Hungary. Is this town the
      present-day Rakovec nad Ondavou in the Kosice region of Slovakia?
