Re: [S-R] New to group, researching Marincak in E. Slovakia
- Information from the Slovak 1995 Census
Years and the name Hrubov was known by:
Hrubov: 1773, 1786 Hrubo, 1808 Hrubó, Hrubowá, 1863-1902 Hrubó, 1907-1913 Rubó, 1920- Hrubov
V obci HRUBOV (okr. HUMENNÉ) / The town of Hrubov (district of HUMENNE) surnames and number found in Hrubov:
This list for Hrubov tells you there was one individual that spelled the name without the dialect mark over the "a", there are 9 men with the surname Marincak and 8 females (Marincakova). There were 7 men with the surname Burik and 8 females (Burikova).
With that many people in Hrubov with your surname in 1995 there is a very good chance there are even more today and you should be able to connect with them.
In the online telephone directory the following were found:
Marincák Stefan Hrubov 48, Hrubov

Marincaková Mária Hrubov 51, Hrubov
Burik Ján Hrubov 132, Hrubov

Burik Stefan Hrubov 68, Hrubov
Website for Hrubov information - http://en.e-obce.sk/obec/hrubov/hrubov.html Hrubov's website is not online yet. When that happens they will have an e-mail address.
Hrubov has a population of 517. My ancestral village has 550. In villages that small everyone has along the way become related to one another. They just are not aware of it because their genealogy memory only goes back a couple of generations, sometimes three.

Subject: [S-R] New to group, researching Marincak in E. Slovakia
I am new to the group. I am from Canada (born here, English speaking, no Slovak I am afraid). I am researching my ancestors from Hrubov SK, in the Humenné District of eastern Slovakia. My surname is Marincak, and I have traced back my ancestry as follows from my great grand parents:
Michal Marincak b 1868 Hrubov d 1912 Hrubov
Alzbeta Burikova b Hrubov 18xx d 19xx Buenos Aires
They had 4 children
-- Michal F.Marincak b 1899 Hrubov (my grandfather)
-- Bernard Marincak b 1902 Hrubov
-- Anna Marincak b 1906 Hrubov
-- Jan Marincak b 1908 Hrubov
My grandfather was their oldest child Michal F. Marincak
-- Michal F. Marincak b 1899 Hrubov d 1986 Canada
-- Anna Butalova b 1904 Serenton USA d 1980 Canada
My father was their second child
---- Jozef Marincak b 1927 Hrubov still living (my father)
---- Jovanka Curcic b 1929 Beograd Serbia still living
------ Allen Marincak b 1957 Ottawa Canada
Any information on the Marincak Family of Eastern Slovakia, especially relations of my great grand father Michal Marincak would be much appreciated. Also for people researching the Marincaks in Slovakia, Canada, and Argentina I may have information that could be useful.
I am new at this so tips & suggestions as well as information are very welcome.

- Thanks johnqadam and mojher!
That is some great info to get started with ... hey, how about that Jan Burik, 132 years old !!! ( ... I am sure they just forgot to enter his death records :-) ).
Thanks for the tips. Any thoughts about subscription sites (i.e. ancestry.com, etc.) are any useful for central / eastern Europe?

Your next step is to take a trip to the LDS Family History Centre.
