My father was born in Zabrocrecky in 1910 and came to the US in 1920. I've lived in India for 20 years since coming here in the Peace Corps in 1965. I would appreciate some information about my father's birthplace. Thanks.

I appreciate your help. If you could translate the following, I would be much obliged.

Obec Žabokreky nad Nitrou patrí do Trenčianskeho kraja, v okrese Partizánske. Leží medzi pohoriami Považský Inovec a Tríbeč, neďaleko obce tečie rieka Nitra. Priemerná nadmorská výška je 219 m.n.m. (178 m.n.m. najnižší bod a 260 m.n.m najvyšší). Poloha je 18°18'10" východnej dĺžky a 48°37'35" severnej šírky. Obec má takmer 1700 obyvateľov. Prvá písomná zmienka je z roku 1291. Osídlenie terajšej oblasti Žabokriek je však doložené archeologickými nálezmi už z doby kamennej a postupne aj z ďalších historických etáp. V rokoch 1872 až 1922 boli Žabokreky sídlom jedného z dvanástich slúžnych okresov Nitrianskej župy, do ktorého patrilo 37 obcí. Pôvodne mali poľnohospodársky charakter a neskôr boli aj dôležitým centrom obchodného a výrobného života. Výrazný stavebný ruch začal v 60-tych rokoch, kedy sa dobudovali bezprašné cesty, mnoho budov a súkromných domov a postupne až do súčasnosti všetky inžinierske siete po celej obci.

I knew it meant "frog's creek". What is the story behind the cute crest with a crown wearing frog?

I couldn't access the site with "Burza". I know that it means "storm" and that there was a famous battle ship with this name that partisans took to England in September of 1939. The name is the same in Polish and in Russian. Interestingly, this is the family name of one of the leading families of Kashmir. In Kashmiri it means "birch" as in the tree. My wife is a Kashmiri and we are very involved with the state. See www.samvedanatrust.com for more information. Also "Buzz Burza" into google for some idea as to what I have been doing. Although I haven't left India since 1994, as trip to my father's birthplace is definitely in the future. Thanks for your help.

I came back home from my holiday weeks at my cottage to found this exiting exchange.

I shall try to translate the text as soon a possible though it’s written in Slovakian language and my mother tongue is Czech.

This is my transplantation of the text above. I hope it will help you in your search.

The village of Zabokreky on Nitra river is situated in Trencin County in a district of Partisanka. The village is placed between mountains Pavazky Inovec and Tribec, not very far from the Nitra river. The elevation of the village is 219 meters over the sea (178 m at the lowest point and 260 m at the highest point). The village coordinates are; longitude18°18'10", latitude 48°37'35”. In the village live today almost 1700 inhabitants. The first historical trace to be found about the place in written documents is from the year 1291. Early inhabitations of the place of Zabokreky is documented by archaeological excavations as far back as to the Stone Age and there after throughout subsequent historical stages. Between 1872 and 1922 Zabokreky was one of the twelve districts of Nitra County. 37 villages have belonged to the Zabokreky district. Originally Zabokreky did have a rural economy later the village transform itself into important local centre of trade and manufacture.

Significant building activities started in the sixties when road metalling was done and many buildings and homes were built. Also modern infrastructure (like sewer etc) was laid down since then and until today.

Guys,

The translation is not perfect yet (there are many mistakes; sorry Dalibor). I will try to improve it when I am a little bit more sober. :o

PS What do you mean, Dalibor, by "road metalling?" :wacko:
