    Perhaps it's because I don't feel that attached to my immediate family, I've always been curious about my older ancestors; those who came over from Europe. And after tracking a great many name-changes, found the place where my great-great-great grandfather (I may have the number of greats wrong; it's my grandfather's grandfather) came from:
    Kaschau, Hungaria-
    or what's known as, nowdays, as Kosice, Slovakia. or if you want to be more specific: HERE.

    It's a strange thing to finally put a name and image to the place my grandfather spoke of, tales handed down about orchards and apple trees and disgruntled farmers.
    Edit:
    Has anyone heard of or been to these places at all?
