    From what part of Slovakia your ancestors were from? What were your original ancestral surnames? I suppose that Beda would be Bejda, which was typical Rusyn

      From what part of Slovakia your ancestors were from? What were your
      original ancestral surnames? I suppose that Beda would be Bejda,
      which was typical Rusyn surname in area of Rusyn town Medzilaborce.
      It is possible that your ancestors were Carpatho-Rusyn.
