      Subject: [S-R] In the vein of discussion of ethnic origins of names.

      One of the ancestors I am looking for is written on documents as "Francis" and even in one case as "Fanny".  Family oral history has her name as Franceska.  I am guessing it might have actually been "Franciska".  She and her family spoke Slovak, does anyone think that would lead more strongly to one version of the name or another?
