Re: "St. Michaels Hungary" #general

Hello to all,
I missed the original request for "St. Michael..." in Hungary, but St.
Michael translates as "Szent Mihály" in Hungarian and not Szent Miklós,
which would be Saint Nicholas. Also there is a suburb of Budapest called
Rákos Szentmihály that could be the location referred to.

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 forChinyadevo 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."
