Re: "St. Michaels Hungary" #general


No wonder Stephanie Weiner could not find the location of St. Michaels
(Szentmiklos) in Hungary (see her message of Jan. 31, 2001)!

When I looked it up in my 1962 Columbia-Lippincott Gazetteer, the entry
referred me to the entry for "Chinyadevo." (Now "who woulda thunk it," as
my mother would have responded facetiously.)

The 1962 C-L's entry for Chinyadevo says it was a village located on the
Latoritsa river, on railroad, in the west trans-Carpathian oblast of the
Ukrainian SSR. In 1941 it had a population of 2,850. It is five miles
north east of Mucachevo and has a 16th century castle. The residents did
lumbering and watch manufacturing. The town is sometimes called
"Chinadeyevo", and in Czech "Cinadjevo."
