Thanks to Tomåť Lang, Elizabeth Long, and Gabriela Svatos for their
thorough and enlightening interpretation of the town name, registered
in a German-language Czech birth record of 1865 as "Vaagvetsch in
Ungarn." As I learned >from the three experts, the town is now in
Slovakia, called Å aÄža-VeÄ?a ("Vaag" = Vah river, "vetsch" = town VeÄ?a;
Å aÄža is the nearby larger town, formerly in Nyitra (Nitra) county in
Hungary.
