      Hi 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.

      Valent, Pavol,Aloyz,Stefan,Jakub.

      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
