Re: Location of Bajovagar and Other Towns in Slovakia of Today #hungary

To All,

Having been involved in research in Slovakia for several years, a very
useful site for finding current names of town is this:
http://www.cisarik.com/0_all-villages-A.html. THe genealogy
researcher (probably Juraj Cisarik), who compiled this provides former
Hungarian and German names for the towns and even a map so you can see
the proximity to other towns.

For Mr. Hochhauser, Bajovagar was found to be Bajerovce.

1. Location of Bajovagar

In the 1867 census, my great-grandfather is listed as having been
born in Bajovagar or Bajovagas in 1841. The handwriting on the census
record makes it difficult to distinguish the last letter of the
location.
In a house sale contract dated 1844, my great-great-grandfather is
shown as living in Berwager. I assume these are the same place and
that Berwager is the German equivalent of Bajovagar/s.
Any suggestions as to its present day location? It's probably in
Northern Slovakia, near Brezovice, but I can't find anything close to
either spelling.
