      Zuzana- You told me there is a listing for a Belnay is Bratislava, in the 1995 Slovak Census. Can you tell me how to access this record? Thank you. Lynne

      > As happens, the spelling of a village can be misspelled. There is no listings for a Vrbiczt or Vrbeicz. The Liptovska Mikulas clue does provide this:

      > The 1995 Slovak Census had only one listing for Belnay, in Bratislava. The 2005 Liptovsky Mikulas telephone directory does not have a listing for Belnay. Other may comment better than I, but to me Belnay does not seem like a Slovak name. Since the surname seems to have died off in Slovakia, it may well be that you have an immigrant family to Slovakia. The Hungarian government encouraged migrants with skills to come to Hungary. For 900 years Hungary controlled what we now know as Slovakia.

      > I only recently joined slovak roots, and am amazed at how much I have learned already about the procesvs. My paternal grandfather, Peter Belnay, was from Vrbiczt, Liptovska Mikulas. I have located "Restauracia" Vrbeicz on Google. Does anyone know if this is the same Vrbicz? Also, are there any Belnays here?
