        As you can see, Ruska Nova Ves is not on the list. Of some use is the fact that the names are concentrated in town from Presov, north to the Bardejov district. From this information it would appear the the Slovak spelling of the name is Jackanin. The "Z" within the name is indicative of a Hungarian spelling. During Magyarization in the late 1800's surnames were given a Hungarian spelling. Below are Ruska Nova Ves surnames; no Jackanin. But plenty of Sabol and Sabolova.

        Subject: [S-R] JACZKANIN


        Does anyone know of anyone researching the JACZKANIN surname? That is the maiden name of my dad's g-grandmother. I see this name in our ancestral village of Sosujfalu (now Ruska Nova Ves) but I haven't had time to pursue it yet; I'm wanting to spend some time on it this upcoming year.

        If anyone has came across this surname in their research could you please reply. Does anyone know if this is a common name across Slovakia?

        I'm assuming the name is pronounced "Yach-ka-nin" but not sure, and I have no idea what the name translates to.

        Thanks in advance for any help.
