RE: [S-R] Church Record Search Philosophy (Wanted) Nyzni Caj
- Here is the research approach I used along with the conclusion I drew:
1. Reference info:
Alternate village name: Nyzny Caj, alsocsaj
Former County: Abov (Abauj-Torna)
Former District: Fuzeri
2. Extracts from "Prehlad matrík na Slovensku do zostátnenia matricnej
Reformed records are in BOHDANOVCE
Evangelical records are in KOSICE
Greek Catholic records were in ZDOBA (present-day this village is a
component of Sady nad Torysou)
Jewish Records kept in ZDANA.
It appears to me that Prehlad is incomplete for this village, since no RC
cross reference is noted. On to the next steps:
3. 1910 Census
1910 Population: 218; 130 Magyar, 88 Slovak. 141 Roman Catholic, 28 Greek
Catholic, 34 Reformed.
4. 1877 Gazetteer
According to an 1877 gazetteer of Hungary, neither Also or Felso Csaj had a
church in its village. The Roman Catholics (98) were affiliated with the
parish in ALSO-MISLYE. (Present-day NIZNA MYSLA)
The FHL does have films of the RC records for NIZNA MYSLA.

Subject: [S-R] Church Record Search Philosophy (Wanted)
I am searching the surname VAMOS and I know that the place of birth is Nyzni
Caj. Church records in the US record my grandfather as being Roman Catholic.
I have looked at the LDS Index and found that there are Roman Catholic
records listed and may be available for at least 4 neighboring
villages/parishes (Krasna Nad Hornadom, Kosicka Polinanka, Ruskov, and Vysna
Mysl'a) that are within a three mile radius of N. Caj. I haven't looked at
a topographic map to assess the practicality of transportation by foot to
these various villages from N. Caj. In general, how does one make an
educated guess for where to start? It isn't that big a deal to view all
four films, if available, but is there a logical way to approach this? Has
anyone found the R. C. records for N. Caj?
