- Wow!!! Did you ever get lucky.
The part of your family tree that only has records available in the
Slovak archives has been completed by a professional genealogist and
the church records for the other branch are widely available for local
research at the LDs Family History Center.
It just doesn't get any better . . .
- Hello Mr. John Q Adam:
You sent me a real boatload of information about
research sites way back in April, 2005 (via the
SR) site. I certainly thank you for the help. I
do admit, though, I was more than confused and
extremely intimidated about the entire project
and have been one of those "lurkers" on the SR
site. I have, however, gleaned a wealth of
information during the lurking time and now feel
somewhat more confident about what to seek when I
go to my local LDS family history center and a
little more knowledgeable about what information
I need and what information is a "nice to have"
bit. For this I thank you and, having said the
above, I will now dive in head first and hope for the best.
