      Thank you. That helps! Especially the post WWII village devastation info. I was wondering why my grandparents house in Pcoline and my uncles house in Zaulzice had the same design. I guess it was a post war govn't funded rebuild plan?

      Here's a little more info from the _Vlastivedny slovnik obci na Slovensku_.

      1869 -- 736
      1880 -- 729
      1890 -- 804
      1900 -- 913
      1910 -- 879
      1921 -- 912
      1930 -- 1,011
      1940 - 1,039
      1948 -- 894
      1961 -- 982
      1970 -- 958

      The community was first mentioned in a written document in 1557. It belonged to nobility in Humenne; in the 18th century it belonged to the Csakyov family, and starting in the middle of the 19th century it belonged to the Rollovci family and others. In 1557, the community had 11.5 portals; in 1715 it had 52 abandoned and 18 inhabited homes. In 1720 it had 2 mills, in 1787 it had 135 homes and 948 residents, and in 1828 it had 154 homes and 1,160 residents. The inhabitants farmed, raised livestock, worked in the forests, and made charcoal. In 1831, part of the population emigrated to the Lower Land ("Dol'na zem" was the term used in the past to describe the southern regions of the Austro-Hungarian monarchy. < http://www.radio cz/en/article/ 72162 >) There was another emigration 1900-10. In the fall of 1944, the community was partially destroyed. [The rest of the "history" has to do with communist party activity.]

      I hope this helps.

      Some names for the village over the past years were:

      Pcoline, Ptsolina, Ptscholina, Pcsolina, and Mehesflava.

      The last name was the name given the village by the
      Magnarization in the early 20th century.
