- Thanks for the clarification on kielbasa & klohbasa. I didn't know there was a
I our home, we spoke a very strange language. It was a mixture of Rusyn,
Russian, Slovak, & Polish. Some food items though were: strudel, kapusta and/or
halusky, kielbasa and/or klohbasa, kluski and/or knedle, etc. So many words
were used interchangeably. I never really knew what language was being spoken
at the time. And English? Well, we spoke the local dialect of "Balmorese". To
this day, I tell people, "All spellings and word usages are questionable."

Not long after I married my husband, who is of German descent, I made a pot of
chicken soup and homemade "kluski". As I was taught, the kluski were served in
a dish separate from the soup so a person could add only as much as they wanted.
Imagine my confusion when hubby took the kluski and topped it with butter &
nutmeg, eating it as a side dish? What???? He kept commenting, "Great
spaetzle!" Finally, I asked, "What the heck is spaetzle? That's kluski! Soup
noodles!" To this day, he still eats my kluski as a side dish and refers to it
as spaetzle. What a gal to do?
I'd love to attend your sausage making party. However, unfortunately, we moved
from the Baltimore - DC corridor to New Mexico. I'll not be able to attend.
Oh ok, the Slovak name for sausage is klobása (kloh-baah-sa). I thought you were
asking about the polish variety known as kielbasa. What you describe sound very
much like the sausages prepared in Slovakia. I don't know where you live, we'll
have some sausage making party here in D.C. in the near future. And yup, I think
knockwurst is the same as spekacky. I got some knockwurt from a german store
over here, and it tasted the same.

- I too would assume they are children of the head of household. In viewing my family's census pages, I've found that the children of the couple are listed in birth order after the parents. If anyone other than a child is living in the household, I've found them entered after the children and the relationship to the head of the household listed above the name.Don't forget to look at the right side of image 202 which shows the Sabol's buildings (household 85) and at the left side of image 204 which shows the Sabol family's animals.Judy
