suggestions and web sites. I went on line and found an LDS Center
near me. They will be closed until after the New Year. I will then
check with them.
Church records prior to 1895 were transferred to the Slovak Republic
The LDS-Mormons have filmed all the parish church records at six of
the seven Slovak State Archives in Slovakia (except for Bratislava)
R.C. parish church records (1697-1902) and Lutheran parish church
records (1733-1902) do exist for Sobtis^te and Podranc^ under
However, I expect Sobtis^te records are at the Main Bratislava
Archives (Archív hlavného mesta SR Bratislavy) whose records the LDS
has not as yet filmed.
Fee charged, archives has three different rates.
Clerical, the cheapest, the basic research, and the most difficult,
the more expensive.
They will do research you request then send you a bill which you must
pay before they mail the information.
Someone on list can tell you how to contact main Bratislava Archive or
hire a researcher for surname records at archives.
