Re: New birth town
>>> the new name of Garamolaszka and it seems to be Valaská, somemiles to the north of Kokava nad Rimavicou (where my grandfather was
born), near Brezno. I have looked up in the old maps and found an
Olaska in Zolyom megye, that seems to be it. <<<
1910 HUNGARIAN MAP
The old Hungarian map can be found at:
In the upper right corner, find Breznobanya and head west ONE village.
There you are!
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.
