Looks like an indexing error.
In 1910, village name was ZELLO, aka, ZUELLA. population 441, 8 Magyar,
9 Germans, 424 Ruthenes; 433 Greek Catholic, 5 Jew.
As far as I can see, this is solid Rusyn/GK territory.
I'd pull the Snina records and see what's there. If the archives
created the index, clearly they have the records. Perhaps the Zvala GK
records were inadvertently commingled with the Snina RK records.
Archivists are usually pretty good, but occasionally one slips thru. It
will only cost $3.50 to find out...

I would think so. Rich Custer is very familiar with Rusyn villages of
area of Slovakia. He may be able to help you. Also, have you tried the
Rusyns list? http://groups.yahoo.com/group/rusyns/
It wouldn't hurt to look at RC records. If there was an RC church in
area there may have been intermarriages.
