    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.
    Has anyone heard of or been to these places at all?
