RE: [S-R] Machut
- Uh, I'm somewhat lost. I didn't ask anything about a Machut(ova). Perhaps that was someone else's post. I only mentioned Macura as that was my husband's family's name--and I mentioned some other names which were connected through marriages or whatever. Our primary ancestral name was Macura, so the fact that there are ANY Macura/Macurovas listed is very good news for us.

On the Sarriske Jastrabie page two current surnames there are Macura and Macurova. There is a list of surnames from the 1822 Greek Catholic church, it lists a Macsur. This seems to confirm your husband may still have family there.
> I did not understand what is being asked about Machut(ova). Which seems to be a surname and not a village name. The Fuzzy Gazetteer for Macura only offered Magura, Slovakia. Which is much further south than Sarriske Jastrabie.
