Dear all --
Regarding the town Szinye Neudorf, I have had two replies. One that
Szinye is now Svinia, the other that the town could now be Chminianska
Nova Ves. Both are near Presov.
I'm still a bit puzzled because of the work "Neudorf" In looking at
1972 Slovakian gazetter film, I have seen the words, neudorf, nova ves,
and ujfalu for many owns. Do they mean "new town" or some such? Or, if
not, what do they mean?
Moderator VK: Neudorf does translate as "new village" or "new town". Nova (novy) ves is "new village" in Slovak. Uj is new and falu is village in Hungarian. Svinia is a few kilometers east of Chminianska Nova Ves. Looks like you're pretty close. Have you checked the 1877 Gazetteer?
