Re: Vanyko & Kupecz
I have Jan Vanko and Catharina Krupec as the parents of my great-grandfather from Blatnice, or Blatnic, in Uhrech, which today is Morava in eastern Czech Republic.
That's quite a coincidence, don't you think?
Krupec is pronounced like "Krupetz", and I presume Kupecz is pronounced like "Kupetz".
Do you think Krupec and Kupecz are variations of the same family name, or completely different?
