      I am confused with this discussion, and here is why.  When I search on the catalog in the LDS Familysearch.org - I search by place names; Sedliacka Dubova.  I then select the Secliacka Dubova Church Records and click on; Cirkena matrika, 1697-1909.
      Then mid-page I can click on - Slovakia, Church and Synagogue Books are available online, click here.
      This is where it is confusing to me.  All of the records are baptizims.  The description for these records are;
      Roman Catholic parish registers of baptisms, marriages and deaths for Sedliacka Dubová, Slovakia, formerly Paraszt-Dubova, Árva, Hungary. text in Latin and Hungarian.
      So why isn't the marriage or death records also included?  Is this part of the 100 year rule Tom Geiss is asking about?

      My thoughts too, but church record books can span 20-40 years or more. So
      even though the 2012 year marker should let us see these records, it won't
      happen until the whole time span has passed as Utah aren't likely to split
      a book. If they do, then they'll be obliged to do it every year.
