      I would say that you are on the right track. Take everything with a
      grain of salt. For example, in the above quote, there was no
      Slovakia in 1873.

      Best to have a look at the original 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, 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:
      www.familysearch.org/Eng/Library/FHLC/frameset_fhlc.asp

      LDS has Roman Catholic parish registers of births, marriages, deaths
      and confirmations for Brezov, Slovakia; formerly Nyirjes, Sáros,
      Hungary. Includes surrounding villages of Frankovce, Lascov, Marhaò
      and Štefurov in Slovakia, formerly Ferencvágás, Lszcó, Margonya and
      Stefuró (or Istvánd) in Sáros county, Hungary.

      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.

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

      Look in the pale yellow area, right side of map, right side of Topu
      River, for Laszo. That's your village.

      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.
