Re: family search
- Yes on all counts! Mrs. Bakicova, Mrs. Vuksicova, Mrs. Matkovicova.
My favorite mouthful is an ethnographic writer Mrs. Kovacevicova.
A rule of thumb is if the surname is a noun, you add -ova, and if it's an
adjective, you change the final -y to -a (Mr. Dlhy, Mrs. Dlha, because
dlhy is an adjective "long"). Note that there are surnames that are nouns
that end in -y too, especially Hungarian ones (Mr. Gaby, Mrs. Gabyova).
