A story about the Izák family with probable Polish roots, whose forefathers settled in the Slovak village Potvorice (now Patvarc in North-Western Hungary). Their descendants were living in various places of Slovakia and Hungary (Budapest), being active in cultural and national life of Slovaks. The author, former clerk of the State Mint in Kremnica, is the descendant and relative of several famous Slovak genealogists (the oldest of them - Andreas Lehotzky - was the author of the first Hungarian lexicon on Hungarian noble families "Stemmatographia nobilium familiarum regni Hungariae", 1796-98, and the latest, Doc. Dr. Darina Lehotská, was the professor of history at the Comenius University in Bratislava). The book is devoted to Milina Lehotzká, born Izáková, the author's mother.
