I asked because northeast Slovakia has a high percentage of Greek
Catholics (services are similar to Russian Orthodox). Most GC's are
of a minority ethnic group called Rusyns. It appears that Hanusovce
nad Toplou has Luthern as well as Roman and Greek Catholic parishes.
I have no idea if the current Sabanos^ residents are Luthern or
Catholic. You can get their full address and phone number from the
online directory. If you get the microfilms of the church registers
for Hanusovce nad Toplou you could find out about your grandfather's
heritage. They contain baptismal, marriage and death records.
The Lutherns are known as Evangelicals in Slovakia. The microfilms
of the church registers were made by the LDS and can be obtained at
your local LDS Family History Center.
