Hamlet size Smolohovytsia=Смологовиця still exists as one of the cluster villages of Chornyj Potik. The others are Krajnya Martynka, Lokotte (prononced LO-KOTTE), and Pidhirne. Total population is 1,013 (369 in Smolohovytsia). They all share the same post ofc and village administration. Your ancestral hamlet was founded originally as a Czech village in appx 1600.

At turn of century when your Immigrant ancestor was emigrating this was Kisabranka > Felvidek jaras/district (Komlos was district seat)> Bereg megye/county > Kingdom of Hungary, Austro-Hungarian Empire. At that time it consisted of 192 residents, predominantly Rusyn. The filial Greek Catholic Parish was in Nagyabranka and the filial RC Parish was in Schonborn. The filial Jewish kahal was in Bilke.

In 1954 Viktor M. Pynsenyk was born in selo/village Smolohovytsia. He went on to study Economics at Lviv University. He received high degrees there and later became both Finance Minister and Deputy Prime Minister under Presidents Kravchuk and Yevtyshenko.
