      Sharon,
      During WW II was in Slovakia a movement (initiative) to change names with
      German or Hungarian origin to names with Slovak origin. It was not depend on
      religion or ethnic origin. Many of the people changed the names by near
      rivers, mountains, villages, etc.

      Hello everyone,

      Yes this the Zavadka that is near Pohorela on the Hron river and I have
      mentioned this town on this site before.

      Adolf and Vojtech's surname's were GUTTMANN however in 1941 Vojtech changed
      it to HRONSKY to avoid the Jewish Connotation even though he was not Jewish.

      Mirco was supposed to have been named Miroslav but some how Mirco was put on
      the birth certificate.

      The time frame in question is: Adolf was born around 1856 and died around
      1928. Ondrej was born around 1870 and died around 1938.

      must be the Zavadka that's near Pohorela in central Slovakia, in the
      Hron river valley. The villages there are famed for their vibrant folklore,
      still preserved today. I was in Zavadka in the early 1980s, and the older
      women were still wearing at least parts of their folk costumes every day,
      especially the embroidered married women's caps.

      The only person I can ask is Mirko and he doesn't know.
