      Sorry, I was less than fully clear. While my father comes from from Slanske Nove Mesto, my mother's family comes from about 3 miles away, Male Ozorovce, which is where the spring is. MO is not far from Sec~ovce: if you take the road from Kos~ice to Sec~ovce, just as you get into Sec~ovce, you take a right and go down that road. The first village is Zbehn~ov (my mother's father came from there), then there's a tiny Roma settlement (doesn't have a name), then there's MO. A cousin on my mother's side married a fellow from Sec~ovce with the last name of Tirpak. Ring any bells?

My cousin's wife said that they use their "plumbed" water for cooking, washing, etc., but that she bikes down to the spring with a few plastic jugs to get the spring water for drinking.

      Thank you, Helen, that's probably where he went for water (somehow I
      thought there'd be a spring in Slanec, without having gone there, though we
      passed it on the road to Zemplinska Teplica from Kosice)
      I have a "cousin" (my Grandfather's brother's Great Grandson) whose Mother
      is from Slanec, unfortunately, I don't know her maiden name. The "cousin"
      stayed with us for 4 months with his girlfriend (now wife) during the
      summer between his 4th and 5th years at University, before he graduated, 2
      years ago, where they worked for a local resturant. Not sure, but maybe
      other people from Slanec (I know of some from Secovce) that we're somehow
      related to.
