Surnames: Hritz, Sikorski, Dorha?

My father was born in Slovakia in 1893. His parents lived in Rolova Huta and grandparents in Margecane, sometimes spelled Margetsany. When we visited Slovakia, we came upon a Hritz Pensione but could not speak Slovak to find out much. Their Pensione was in the high Tatras. It is a beautiful place to drive through but difficult if you don't know the roads. There were quite a few Romany settlements and they were not friendly. My mother's family came from Lipany which is in the East but I have not been able to find records of her family. Their surnames were Sikorski or Sikorsky.
