I thought I'd pinned down the birthplace of my maternal grandfather. According to Wikipedia, there are no less than three villages named Lúčky in Slovakia:

  • Lúčky, Michalovce District

  • Lúčky, Ružomberok District

  • Lúčky, Žiar nad Hronom District

How on earth do I go about figuring out which one is right? Especially when I can neither speak nor read Slovak?
