      >>> I would really like to find info on their parents. Or, at least,
      some guidance as to where to start searching. <<<

      You will have to pay a pro to do your research at the Slovak Archive.
      The films of church records have not been indexed and released and
      there is no date given for release.

      You CAN dtermine the availability of archived church records. Here's
      how.

      LDS FICHES (set of 6) LDS #6000786
      Survey of parish registers in Slovakia up to the time of civil
      registration. Provides details of church records that are held in
      Slovak archives. Index of villages is on fiche #6 and page
      references refer to different religions. Most of these church records
      are available on film via your LDS Family History Center but NOT for
      western Slovakia

      CHURCH RECORDS AT LATTER DAY SAINTS (MORMON) LDS FAMILY HISTORY
      CENTER (FHC)
      Go to the LDS web site:
      www.familysearch.org/Eng/Library/FHLC/frameset_fhlc.asp

      LOCATE YOUR NEAREST FAMILY HISTORY CENTER AND ORDER FICHES if not
      already on hand.

      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 fiches if they are not already on
      hand. In about a month, the fiches will arrive and you can book a
      reader and begin your research.
