After the WWI peace treaty (1920) the Slovaks chnaged name to
Spis^ z^upa (county) before the Z^upy system was discontinued
Because of Slovak grammatical gender form , Spis^ská, Spis^ské,
Spis^sky' might have been used as prefix to names of some
Mirkovce is located 13 miles NNE of Kos^ice (Sv) Kassa (H) in former
Sáros Meyge (H), later called S^aris^ z^upa (Sv) as above.
There are R.C. parish church records (1787-1895) and G.C. parish
church records (1773-1895) for Mirkovce, Slovakia.
