I suggest you take this a little piece at a time. These people came from a
variety of places and sometimes it is not easy to decipher what records you
need to look at.
Let's take the Gloviczky-Bukas marriage.
You list Michal Gloviczky as being born in "Almas-Jablonov-Spis-county."
He was most likely from Szepesalmas, which was also called
Szepeshely, east of old Iglo (Spisska Nova Ves), now Spisske Podhradie.
There were two Roman Catholic parishes, and you would need to look at the
films for both.
Jablonov seems to be a red herring here unless the "Spis" is wrong. There
were villages of Also-Almas and Felso-Almas which were also called
Jablonov/Jablonovce, but these were in Hont county, not Szepes. The Roman
Catholic records for these villages are with Pecsanics/Pecenice.
Most Gloviczky immigrants came from Lelesz in Zemplen county (Kralovsky
Chlumec), but this is quite a long distance away. The Slovak phone directory
(for Glovicky) also suggests Kralovsky Chlumec. Michal's family might have
originally come from that area.
You list Zuzana Bukas as born in "Vitkocz-Vitkovce-Spis-county.
Vitkocz/Vitkovce was also called Vitfalva. It is not far from Spisske
Podhradie (see map of Slovakia, on MapQuest for instance). Its Roman
Catholic records are with Kortvelyes, now Spissky Hrusov in Slovakia.
In keeping with Bill's recommendation of providing tools rather than just
end results, the above data were gleaned from combining information from:
Radix (www.bogardi.com <http://www.bogardi.com/
LDS Family Search Library Place Search
Lazarus 1910 Maps
Slovak Phone Directory
Both of these names are quite uncommon, and none appears in the phone
directory for the above-named villages in Spis.
Just that is enough to keep you busy for quite a while. Meanwhile, I'll see
if I can come up with anything on the others.
