      Sounds like it is time to break out the Slovak-English

      Someone also emailed to be sure to copy the NAME not the
      underlying link connected to it.

      Looks like I've got a few doctors and an ambassador in
      my family tree -- and found a few photos as well --
      thanks for that tip Greg. For those who speak and
      read Slovak -- you'll get a LOT more out of this than
      I even did.
