      Take some time to check out the following web site.

      JOB ONE is to figure out the village of origin. It is manadatory.

        1) You didn't say WHERE they were married. That makes a big
        difference. If they married in the old country, they lived with TWO
        villages distance.

        2) Two of your surnames are quite unique. That allows playing "name
        games" with the current phone listings. While not proof of anything,
        the villages may serve to point you in the right direction.

        You might find relatives in Slovakia who have a telephone by looking
        them up in the phone book white pages at
        http://www.zoznamst.sk/eng/index.html using (at least) the first
        three letters of the family name and the area code.

        The only "match" is Kosice in area code 055. Given area code 055,
        and reiterating the search, we can reduce the possible village list.

        Now, if you are a betting person, where would you put your money? I
        thought so. Did you say GC for religion?

        CENTER (FHC)
        When searching for genealogical information, knowing the birth
        village is paramount because records are organized by village not
        nationally, so it is not possible to search on a national basis. 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:

        LDS has Greek Catholic parish registers of baptisms, marriages and
        deaths for Košice, Slovakia, formerly Kassa, Abauj-Torna, Hungary.
        Text in Latin, Hungarian and Ruthenian. Indexed. Children baptized
        in 1852-1911 were from mixed marriages, where one of the parents was
        Greek Catholic and the other Roman Catholic. The children were Greek
        Catholic even though baptized in the Roman Catholic church.

        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
