      I found a reference in a 1994 edition of "In Search of Your European
      Roots" Second Edition by Angus Baxter on page 244, stating,

      "In Slovakia censuses were held in 1809, 1880, 1890, and 1910, and
      then in 1920 and every ten years since. They are in the National
      Archives (Archivni Sprava, Kriskova 7, 811 04 Bratislava). Copies of
      the pre-1920 ones are in the National Archives of Hungary (Magyar
      Orszagos Leveltar, Becsikapu ter 4, Budapest)."

      Can someone explain what information is contained in the 1890 and
      1900 censuses? I am hoping it shows the names of each individual in a
      household and maybe their ages. What should I expect to find?

      I emailed a genealogist in SE Slovakia, who does work in Budapest and
      was recommended by a person from Ancestry.com, to inquire about
      obtaining copies from the Budapest Archive for specific surnames and
      certain family groups but did not receive a reply. Before I try again
      I want to know the contents of the census. Two Zemplen villages I
      seek (Ruske and Zvala) have a limited amount of or no church records
      and these villages are submerged now (a dam was built). I am also
      seeking data from two Saros (Orlov and Malcov) villages for the same
      time periods.

      I have already gone through the 1869 census but need data from a more
      recent source.

      Thanks for your assistance.
