Re: [S-R] Village of Mariassy? in Slovakia
- It sounds like you encountered what was once called a "long s" in
America. It did look much like a "f".

- Your village is present-day Markusovce and was the seat of the Mariassy
family. The following website gives a great map of Slovakia where you will
find all those towns you mentioned. You can zoom in and out easily.
I suspect that the Hungarian name was Markusfalva, in Szepes Megye.
- When I put Mariassy into Google, the 4th entry was for Markusovce. That
website gives much interesting information about the town (founded in the
13th century) as well as a variety of other names by which it was known.
