Re: [S-R] grandparents
- Now if you explain the source of your spelling, people may be able to help
more precisely. Is the document mainly in Slovak, Hungarian or German? I
do not have the old spellings, but here are three for speculation:
Banovec could be a spelling for Banovce, given the vagaries of time and
phonetic spellings that sometimes take place. There is a Banovce nad
Ondavou in Slovakia if that is interesting. There is also a Ban^vice and a
Banovce nad Bebravou.
