I've been helping a woman research her husband's western Slovakia roots.
She's going to Slovakia this fall and is trying to learn a bit of Slovak in
preparation for meeting some people in Tura Luka who have the family name.
She sent me the following request:
" Can you get me the name of a Slovak-speaker, preferably a native speaker,
in the Chicago area? I learn languages out of books, rather than by ear,
so I need an educated person who can answer esoteric grammatical questions.
I live most of the summer in Michigan (Interlochen, near Traverse City), but
I wander back to Chicago every couple weeks. I have recordings, but it would
help to interact with a person."
When she visits Illinois, she stays in Elmhurst, but she's willing to
travel. If you know of somebody (or you ARE somebody) who'd like to help,
please email me privately: anabeth@...
and I'll help you get in touch
