- I am researching my wife's Slovak family. The above names are her grandparents' family names. They were from Cecehov in what is now the Slovak Republic. Apparently this tiny village was close to Michalovce (sp?). Any info or direction you can give me would be appreciated. I'm brand new to this, and am enjoying is thoroughly. Thanks alot. Sincrely, Ron

C~ec~ehov is about 6 kilometers southeast of Michalovce and was located in
Uz~ county when they had the county system. It's not so tiny as 100 years ago
and has grown as so many villages have grown there. There is a church.
The C~ec~ehov records have been filmed by the LDS church and if there is a
family history center near you - you can find the families in the records.
Another way to get info on ancestors is to have the Slovak archives do a
serch - they sometimes can go way back.
These are the LDS filmed records that I was talking about --- I know that Uz
was microfilmed because this is where I found much needed information about
my relatives in Lachovce, Ungvarsk which is now Uzhorod. See, I didn't think
that I was crazy........
