The microfilms of matriky for L'ubotice (Kellemes) are listed as
under Niz^ná S^ebastová (Also'sebes)
under S^aris^ské Jastrabie (Felso"kánya)
Text in Latin, Hungarian, and Ruthenian.
Medve means 'bear' in Hungarian.
Archaic digraph 'cz' is pron. ts in Hungarian, but the modern
spelling is letter 'c'.
