    My God, No! Spis is in the East, no west of Slovakia. I said so many times, there is no genealogy without a good map. Why don t you order one with Dan? Really,

      My God, No!
      Spis is in the East, no west of Slovakia. I said so many times, there is no
      genealogy without a good map. Why don't you order one with Dan? Really, it
      would save you and others a lot of time.

      > My ancestor Andrej Placko arrived in the US in 1893 at age 18 and lived,
      worked and died in Fayette Co. PA (Uniontown). I want to pursue the western
      Slovakia towns because my mother heard Andy's wife (Sophia Janecko) say she
      was from "Spis", and she emigrated at age 6 with her parents in 1886. Upon
      further questioning, my mother just assumes he also came from that region.

      > In Andy's obituary (June 1938) it states that in addition to 3 brothers in
      the US, he had 2 sisters "Mrs. Mary Celec and Mrs. Anna Celec, both in
      Czechoslovakia". I have no information on these Placko sisters.
