meant Svidink Ukraine or Svidnik, Slovakia...I have
relatives who live in the latter...my Grandmother
was from Visny Orlek near there...they were going to
move there from Svidnik after they retired. My Grandmother's
maiden name was Warhol.
I have a funny memory of the post office in Svidnik. (SK)..on our
first trip to Slovakia, my mother didn't know where my relatives
lived in Svidik, so she went to the post office to call them...for some
reason she must have been confused as to whether it was a local or long
distance call...anyhow, she paid to use one of the phone booths there, and
while trying to call our relative, we hear a knock on the door of the
phone booth...turns out the relative lived just around the corner from the
post office...we laughed about them having to ask the postal clerk which
booth the "crazy Americans" were in.
I speak only for myself
