Re: [S-R] Volkovoje and Ungordas
- Michael, you need to look in Ukraine, not Slovakia.
Ungordas is Vovkove (in the official Ukrainian), Vovkovoje/Volkovoje in the
local Rusyn language. It's just east of Uzhhorod, in the Zakarpatska
(Transcarpathian) Oblast. The village is inhabited by Rusyns.
See this map segment:
Unfortunately, the village isn't marked, but it's just southwest of Serednje
[looks like CepedHe], just east of Rus'ki Komarivci [looks like Pycbki
Information about Rusyns:
Information about Transcarpathia:
p.s. There are also a lot of Spontaks from the village Dubrovka/Dubrivka,
the southeast neighboring village from Vovkovoje.
