When searching for genealogical information, knowing the birth village
is paramount because records are organized by village, Markusovce. It
is also necessary to know the religion (NOT SPECIFIED). 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 Roman Catholic parish registers 1697-1919 of baptisms,
marriages, deaths and confirmations for Markusovce, Slovakia; formerly
Markusfalva, Szepes, Hungary. Includes the affiliated towns of
Cepanovce, Lieskovany, Teplicka, Rudnany.
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.
