Thank you for your note. It is exceptional now days that people take the
time to say "thanks" especially amoung the younger crowd. Your sentiments
are truly appreciated. I am only glad that it's helped. (I'm absolutely
swamped, so message delays like this have become ordinary for me.
Funny, I'm actually Rusyn bloodlined, I have no Slovak in me. That said,
our research is so interrelated that we MUST collaborate with each other.
That seems to be a fact lost on many young researchers.
I do hope you will consider adding to the small amount of published research
material. Even something as simple as a success story to inspire others.
By the way, I work in the computer industry, and worked in a sector related
to backups for several years. Yes, I practice what I preach. Both
professionally and personally, I have experienced many disk crashes. I only
lost data once - the first time it happened 25 years ago. Problem is, I now
have so many backups, including in a safe deposit box, it's now difficult to
tell what is the most up-to-date one. It's not necessarily the one with the
latest date! Genealogy software doesn't have a "versioning" feature,
whereby your changes are logged and can be un-done if necessary. Investing
in a software package that does it automatically for you solves most of the
drudgery of it.

I just wanted to say "THANK YOU" for all of your hard work and time that
put into the parish list that you compiled and the rest of the information
on your website. It was fascinating to see the dates for the various
because it not only helps us double-check the time periods, but can also
to more indepth searches of some of the older records (I was surprised by
how far back the KEZAMOROK records go and one of my great, great, great
grandmothers is from a small village that belonged to either the Evangelic
Catholic parish), as well as may lead to searches of neighboring parishes.
am very glad that you are a Slovak brethren, as both you personally and
website have helped me immensely with my family research over the years.
use your website constantly as my springboard for genealogical research.
Without all of your help, I know I would not have understood as much or
as far in my genealogical research. Thanks again, my friend!
P.S. Make sure to backup your computers and make hard copy prints of your
genealogical information. I recently had a major computer crash.
