Andrejovka and Orlov are located in the Stará L'ubovn^a region of
Germans, Slovaks, Rusyns, Croatians, Hungarians, and Poles.
Don't know which group settled here first in 12th, 14th, and 16th
The German 'f' script letter can look like the German double ss
Expect Kossainen, or whatever is a German spelling, was some village
located in this region ?
The G.C. parish church records for Andrejovka are listed under Orlov.
There is also a Andrejová located near Bradejov.
But, Transcarpathia was called Zakarpat'ia (Ru) Zakarpattia (Uk)
and was part of Czechoslovakia 1920-1938.
Only in 1945 did Czechoslovakia's former province of Subcarpathian
Rus' became part of the Soviet Union and later the Ukraine.
