Dear Ms. Elliott,
it may prove useful to you (but probably not) to know that my greatgrandmother's name was (Amalia) JEKOVEC. I don't know (yet) her parents' names or where was she born, but she seemed to have lived all of her adult life in the capital, Ljubljana, where she married Stanko (=Stanislav) Velkovrh and (in Sept. 1888) gave birth to my grandfather Stanko. She died in 1932 and is buried in Ljubljana.
If I happen to find out that she was indeed from Žiganja vas (near Tržič) I will certainly let you know.
I wish you success with your research! V. V. B.
