Re: [S-R] Lewohutta?
We visited Livovská Huta last October, it is 4 km south of Livov. Here the paved road ends. The town is very small, it has a Russian Orthodox church. We saw a field being plowed by a man behind a plow drawn by a cow. The "creek" along side the
road from Lukov (Lukov is at the turn off of the main east-west road out of Bardejov) to Livovská Huta is the Topľa river and just 3 km further south of Livovská Huta, in the hills, is the headwater of the Topľa. The Topľa is about 100 km long and
runs into other rivers, changing its name each time, eventually reaching the Danube in Yugoslavia.
Livovská Huta is about 25 km south west of Bardejov, in northeast Slovakia.
Send private mail if you want a some pictures of the town.

It's Livivska Huta (or now, Livovska' Huta) in old Saros/Saris County in
northeast Slovakia. Mostly inhabited by Carpatho-Rusyns, also some Germans.
If your family was Greek Catholic (and thus ethnically Rusyn) you can look
up films at LDS here:
Livovska Huta [Slovak]
Livivs'ka Huta [Rusyn]
Livóhuta is its name in Hungarian.
Called Livovská Huta in Slovak.
Located 195 miles ENE of Bratislava in okres (district) Bardejov
in eastern Slovakia.
Church registers depend.
What was family religious affiliation ?
R.C. or G.C. religion ?
Both are available 1790-1895.
