My name is Alexander Kovatch. (alex@kovatch.net)

My grandfather and his family are from a town named Velyka Turycja Ushordska Zapa, Turii Remety. It might also be known as Nagyturjaszog, which was the Magyar/Hungarian name for the Rusyn village of Velyka Turycja, sometimes called simply Turycja.

The city of Ungvar, now Uzhorod, is in the yellow area. Just to the northeast -- colored reddish-brown -- is the district labeled Perecsenyi after its principle town of Perecsen, today's Perec'yn, on the west bank of the Ung/Uz' River, across from the point where the east-to-west flowing Turja River joins it. Five miles east of Perecyn is Turjaremete/ Turji Remety/ Turja Remeta, at the point where the smaller Turica (=Little Turja) River joins the Turja from the north. A couple of miles up the Turica is the village of Nagyturjaszog, which was the Magyar/Hungarian name for the Rusyn village of Velyka Turycja, sometimes called simply Turycja.
