Szir�k, in N�gr�d megye, is still Szir�k, not Sziraki. Sziraki means "from
Szirak." I was just there in March.
All of the names with the exception of Mojzis seem to be Hungarian. You
might want to join the RootsWeb Hungary mail list.
Mojzis may also be spelled Moyzis.

CHURCH RECORDS AT LATTER DAY SAINTS (MORMON) LDS FAMILY HISTORY
When searching for genealogical information, knowing the birth
village is paramount because records are organized by village not
nationally, so it is not possible to search on a national basis. It
is also necessary to know the religion. To locate church records for
Slovakia, knowing the village/town name, go to the LDS web site:
www.familysearch.org/Eng/Library/FHLC/frameset_fhlc.asp The church
records cover baptisms (krsteni), marriages (sobeseni) and deaths
LDS has Roman Catholic parish registers of baptisms, marriages and
deaths for Bzov�k, Slovakia, formerly Boz�k, Hont, Hungary.
