      Which one? Maria Anna Scholz, or Anna Przeczek?

      Maria Anna's father was born in Bielsko-Biala in Silesia (Poland) and
      Anna's father was born near Bielsko-Biala. What are the grounds for
      calling their daughters Maria Anna or Anna "Slovak"?

      The Pope's genealogy through two of his g-g-grandparents published in
      1981 contains no hint that any of his listed ancestors should have
      come from Slovakia.
