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........
