In October, 1999, Mike and Renee (San
Ramon, CA) visited the Slovak Republic, including
Turzovka, the hometown of Peter and Rose. Their
trip was made most enjoyable and productive by the
hospitality of Nadja Čuboňová, who is a distant cousin.
Originally from Turzovka, Nadja currently resides in
Žilina where she is a member of the Mechanical
Engineering faculty at the University of Žilina.
She was a gracious hostess and an invaluable tour guide
collections of photographs linked from the above
mini-menu were taken during the trip and provide a
close-up view of our roots. Their findings also
remind us that there are parallel generations of Chubons/Čuboňs
in the USA and Slovakia. Heart-felt thanks to Mike
and Renee for uncovering and recording a significant
part of the past and insuring its presence in the lives
of future generations.
