My grand-father emigrated to the U.S. and was from originally
Slovakia, and am looking for information on his parents and two
siblings whom both stayed in Slovakia. I have the dates and towns
where each passed away (Plavnica and Levoca), as well as the birth
dates of the father and two siblings.
I was interested in seeing whether his siblings had any family whom
might be alive today, and so was looking to obtain the obituary,
death certificate, etc.
Could you please help me by directing me on how you would recommend
I try and go about this. I realize that I may need to work with
someone here in the U.S. whom speaks Slovak. I am first just trying
to understand where to look, and if the records might exist. I have
already found church records of one home town (the dates came from
there), though I was hoping some newspaper or state/government
records might be of some help.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
