      Thanks again Frank! I appreciate your tireless devotion to helping and to deciphering and translating words from one language to another. I think I'm actually beginning to get a feel for seeing patterns and similarities. Ursula

      Much later (73 years in 1921) a Maria Zastko, age 24 , married ,
      Slovak, born in Slovenská Ves, emigrated to her husband Andrew in
      Waterbury CT.
      She traveled with her son Alois (Aloysius), age 9 months, who was also
      born in Slovenská Ves.

      In Hungarian, tót, tóth means a Slovak.
      -falu means village.
      Szepes megye (county), Slovak Spis^ z^upa (county)
      Slovenská ves (Sk) was called Szepestótfalu (H)

      Slavos^ovce, Slovakia was called Nagy (large) Szabos in
      Hungarian, but it is located 36 miles distant from Slovenská Ves.
