Subject: Re: [Slovak-World] Saints & First Names in Slovakia a Century Ago
Writing an article on saints who were beloved in Slovakia a hundred years ago and were the inspiration for many of our ancestor's first names.
Here's a quick list i came up with - would welcome recurring first names in your ancestral family.
Our Winter 2012 issue of "Slovakia" had a super article by SW's Michael Mojher on Slovak Mythology and the pantheon of pagan gods. Michael's niece Claire Mojher did gorgeous illustrations for the article and a fantastically colorful and creative cover of St Nicholas.
My printer gave me extras so if someone would like a copy for $1 to cover postage and handling please e mail me directly at helenezx@...
The issue also had a gorgeous icon, some wonderful naive paintings and an article on Milan Rastislav Stefanik, Slovakia's Renaissance man, whose loss is still mourned.
