I am looking right now in a village called Cerova in NW Slovakia on the
west side of the Maly Tantra Mountains. It lies in Nyitra, and in
modern day Okres Trnava near Jablonica and Senice.
There is a gap in the R.C. church records from about 1900-1908 (if I
remember correctly). The records older and younger than this time are
located in the Bratislava Archive (according to the FHL Prehlad
If the local village church does not have these records, could there be
copies stored in a diocese church archive some where else ?
Am I correct to assume that the "District" archives are a government
archive or are you refering to a district church archive ?
p.s. Is it correct to assume that these gaps in the church records held
by the Bratislava Archives are due in most cases to the destruction/loss
of the church records ?
