Re: [S-R] unlisted towns-Diustin
- Dear Ed,
Have you ever used the "ShtetlSeeker"?
I put your town of "Diustin" into this search engine and see that "
DUCZATYN" is in the right spot for Autstria-Hungary. More likely in the area of
what was then called "Galicia." Today, Duczatyn is in Poland. It is pronounced
somewhat like Diustin
this is the URL for the shtetlseeker:
welcome to the group.

Duczatyn is located in SE Poland (yes, former Galicija) and 10 miles
distant from Medzilaborce, Slovakia (eastern)
Medzilaborce is located 232 miles ENE of Bratislava and 70 miles east
Believe this Duczatyn is located too far east ?
The Tatras form the central, highest of the Carpathian mountain
They are ringed by four broad basins west to east : Podhale, Orawa,
Liptow and Spisz.
Spisz region looks like a better match.
Germans, Slovaks, Rusyns, Croatians, Hungarians, and Poles.
Don't know which group settled here first in 12th, 14th, and 16th
Early in 15th c the 16 towns in the northen Spis^ region of central
Slovakia (including Stará L'ubovn^a and L'ubica)- near to but not
including the royal Saxon towns of Käsmark and Leutschau - were
sold to Poland, underwhose rule they remained 1412-1772.
I should have written that the surname Makowsky spelled Makovsky
rather than Makowsky looks like a Slovak spelling of the Polish surname
In Slavic languages the, letter v is pron. v.
In Polish and German the letter w is pron. v.
Hornik is a Slovak surname.
As to a possible hypothetical solution of the locations of the GP's
Matasofca <========> Diustin
Matias^ovce (formerly known as Matiassowce/Máty
ásfalu/Mathsau/Matzau/) is located 170 miles ENE of Bratislava and 3 miles =
Spis^ská Stará Ves, close tothe Polish border and 9 miles distant from a D=
Any positive evidence ?
The Slovakia telephone directory lists 5 surnames Horník under
Spis^ská Stará Ves which is located 3 miles from Matias^ovce and 9 miles f=
The directory also lists two surnames Makovsky' under Spis^ská
Belá which is located 14 miles from Spis^ská Stará Ves and 12 miles
distant from Matias^ovce.
These days expect no one could earn a livelihood in a small Slovakia
village and the surname's ancestors have moved over time.
