Vranov nad Topl'ou is located 215 miles ENE of Bratislava.
Csicsva (C^ic^ava) was located 214 miles ENE of Bratislava.
C^ic^ava, Slovakia, formerly Csicsóka (H), Zemplén megye,
The Magyar letter cs = Slovak diacritic c^ = ch, or = ts.
The letter cs which is pron. as ts was eliminated in 1910.
Perhaps there was a consolidation of settlement names ?
R.C. parish church records (1744-1895) for C^ic^ava are listed
under Ondavské Matis^ovce.
G.C. parish church records (1787-1900) are listed under C^ic^ava.

few times. Pod�i�va was part of Sedlisk� but the name is not used anymore.
there is a castle ruin called �i�va and Pod�i�va means just means that the
village is "under" the castle �i�va. i am not old enough to know but I
beleive that when your grandad lived the name of the village was the same as
the name of the castle.
I hope that I helped you in some ways
