      Based upon Rich Custer's reply, you should be checking the Lukov
      church records.

      CHURCH RECORDS AT LATTER DAY SAINTS (MORMON) LDS FAMILY HISTORY
      CENTER (FHC)
      When searching for genealogical information, knowing the birth
      village is paramount because records are organized by village not
      nationally. It is also necessary to know the religion. To locate
      church records for Slovakia, knowing the village/town name, go to
      the LDS web site:
      www.familysearch.org/Eng/Library/FHLC/frameset_fhlc.asp

      LDS has Greek Catholic parish registers of baptisms, marriages and
      deaths for Lukov, Slovakia, formerly Lukó, Sáros, Hungary. Includes
      affiliated town of Venecia, Slovakia, formerly Veneczia, Sáros,
      Hungary.

      LDS also has the very informative 1869 Hungarian Census Film:
      Luko (Lukov) VAULT INTL Film 2150638 Item 2

      LOCATE YOUR NEAREST FAMILY HISTORY CENTER AND ORDER FILM
      You can go to the LDS web site to locate your nearest Family History
      Center (FHC) and determine their hours of operation. You will need
      to go there in person to order the film(s). In about a month, the
      film will arrive and you can book a film reader and begin your
      research.

      TRANSLATION OF CHURCH RECORDS
      Checkout http://www.bmi.net/jjaso/ for parish record header
      translations.

      LDS also has a pretty good translation guide which you can download.
      See forums.delphiforums.com/iarelative/messages message #3931.1 for
      details.

      1910 HUNGARIAN MAP
      The old Hungarian map can be found at:
      http://lazarus.elte.hu/hun/maps/1910/saros.jpg

      To find Luko, look in center of map, pale green area west of Bartfa
      = Bardejov.

      SAVE the map on YOUR computer. OPEN the map in any graphics program.
      CUT and PRINT the relevant section of the map. Otherwise, you just
      get a corner. This map uses the Hungarian village names that you
      will likely find in church records.

      Happy squinting!
