      A suggestion, please do not write in all capital letters, it is hard to read and in e-mail etiquette all caps is shouting your message

      WE ARE LOOKING FOR INFORMATION ABOUT GELLERT AND GELLERTFALVA IN
      SLOVAKIA. IT NO LONGER SEEMS TO BE USED AS A VILLAGE PLACE NAME. A
      NAME LIST WE FOUND ON GENFORUM ASSOCIATED IT WITH A VILLAGE WHICH TODAY
      IS NAMED GERALTOV. HOWEVER, THIS VILLAGE CAN NOT BE THE ONE WE ARE
      SEARCHING FOR.

      WE BELIEVE THAT GELLERT/GELLERTFALVA IS LOCATED AT OR JUST BEYOND THE
      EDGE OF SPISSKE VLACHY BECAUSE THE RECORDS WE HAVE DISCOVERED (DEATH
      1908 -- GELLERTFALVA #20; BIRTHS 1894, 1898, 1900 -- GELLERTFALVA #01;
      BIRTH 1918 -- GELLERT #10; MARRIAGE 1910 -- GELLERT-SPISSKE VLACHY)
      WERE, ACCORDING TO THE RESEARCHER, WRITTEN IN THE PARISH BOOK WHERE ALL
      SMALL PLACES AFFILIATED WITH SPISSKE VLACHY ARE INCLUDED.

      WE ARE GREATLY HANDICAPPED BECAUSE WE DO NOT SPEAK, READ, R WRITE
      SLOVAK. THE SPISSKE VLACHY WEBSITE IN ENGLISH IS MOST INTERESTING, BUT
      NO HELP HERE. WE HAVE NOT BEEN ABLE TO LOCATE ANY OTHER ENGLISH
      RESOURCES TO HELP.
