- Jan 13, 2013Hi Helene,
I took a look at Steve's tree and came up with the following. Most of these are from the Hrapkov area.
Apolania, Alzbeta,Frederika,Zofia,Magda,Veronica, Dorotya and Ruzena.
I'll let you know if I find any more.

I had two aunts who were named Ruzena. All others are there. Of course my name was found in a book by my brothers ; no one they knew had that name Jaqueline
