      1) SLOVAK MAP
      The best map book is Podrobny Auto Atlas, scale 1:100,000. That's
      the best way to plan your Slovak route.

      2) There are several instances of Trstena. I assume you are talking
      about the one near the Polish border and near Tvrdosin on the
      Oravica River.

      3) GENEALOGY
      If you haven't already researched the old church records for
      Trstena, you should do so before you go. That way, you will have
      something to talk about with your cousins.

      CENTER (FHC)
      When searching for genealogical information, knowing the birth
      village is paramount because records are organized by village not
      nationally. 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

      LDS has Roman Catholic parish registers of baptisms, marriages and
      deaths for Trstená, Slovakia, formerly Trsztena, Árva, Hungary.

      LOCATE YOUR NEAREST FAMILY HISTORY CENTER AND ORDER FILM
      You can go to the LDS web site to locate your nearest Family History
      Center (FHC) and determine their hours of operation. You will need
      to go there in person to order the film(s). In about a month, the
      film will arrive and you can book a film reader and begin your
      research.

      TRANSLATION OF CHURCH RECORDS
      Checkout http://www.bmi.net/jjaso/ for parish record header
      translations.

      LDS also has a pretty good translation guide which you can download.
      See forums.delphiforums.com/iarelative/messages message #3931.1 for
      details.
