- Feb 22, 2005I would like to know how one can go about finding military records from
about the 1860's.
My great-great-grandfather, Joannes Kalman, was born 11JUN1843 in Farkasfalu
(Vlkova), Szepes County. My great-great-grandmother, Katarina Bockaj, was
born 24NOV1849 in Abrahamfalu, Szepes County. Both were Roman Catholic. I
have been unable to find their marriage record or the baptismal records for
their first 4 children; including that of my great-grandmother, Mary Kalman
(born abt 1869).
The FHC film includes the villages of Vlkova, Abrahamovce, Pikovce, and
Levkovce in Szepes County. I did find both baptismal records (1843 & 1849)
in this film, but no marriage record, nor baptismal records of their
Joannes and Katarina appear once again around 1883 in the village of
Kortvelyes (Spissky Hrusov), Szepes County. So between the years 1843-1883,
I have no idea re his whereabouts.
Joannes had several siblings, including a brother, Ferents Kalman, whom I
found in Durand (Tvarozna), Szepes County. According to Ferents' marriage
record, he was a soldier, and it gave the number of his division in which he
I am assuming that the same probably holds true for my Joannes Kalman. That
is, he served in the military, and his marriage record, and birth records
for several of his children will be found in whatever town / village that he
Now, how does one find theses military records, and how much information is
given in them?
Thanks in advance!
