    JohnQ, You are right that the Hungarian name for the village was Varhosszuret, or some variation thereof. So that is what you will find on any Hungarian map.

      JohnQ,

      You are right that the Hungarian name for the village was Varhosszuret, or some variation thereof. So that is what you will find on any Hungarian map. But be sure to also look in the indexes of the Hungarian Gazeteers of the ninteenth century which also list the other names in contemporary use; Langewiese as the German name, and Dluha Luka as the Slovak usage. Hungarians created these indexes because they were just as confused as we are by the variant names.

        Bob,

        It's a mystery! The closest I can see is Lukac~ovce and there are two.  One Okres Humenne and the other in the west, Okres Hlohovec and a Lukac~ near the Moravian Border under the Highest Peak of the Bile Karpaty, Javorina.

        The Hungarian word, Falva means village.

        Sorry I can't help more.

        Z Bohom,

        Vilo

        I found a death Record of a relative in the Krasnohorske Podhradie area.    His place of birth was listed as LukacsFalva.  I cannot find any reference to this village.  I searched on-line under Roznava, Krasnohorske Podhradie, the records dating back from 1895 and the person in question is line 52 on frame 588 of 632 .

        Any help on this will be appreciated.

              I was staying in Krasnohorske Podhradie and my cousin that lives in Lipovnik told me about a small cave a few km south of them in either Krasnohorske Dlha Luka or in Jovice..   I never found it.  Maybe next time.
