98 phone listings. There are TWO listings in Tulc'ik. This may not
be a coincidence.

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
>>> and he married Suzie Yusko (Jusko), who I'm told was from
Tulcik, Slovakia..... <<<
LDS has Roman Catholic parish registers of baptisms, marriages and
deaths for Tulc'ík, Slovakia; formerly Töltszék, Sáros, Hungary.

The old Hungarian map can be found at:
Look in the pink area, mid map. Follow the road northeast out of
Eperjes (= Presov) to Toltszek. That's your village.
SAVE the map on YOUR computer. OPEN the map in any graphics program.
CUT and PRINT the relevant section of the map. Otherwise, you just
get a corner. This map uses the Hungarian village names that you
will likely find in church records.
