Ruske Birth Records
- I am seaching for two specific Ruske birth records. The LDS films
generally end with 1877 but I am looking for 1886 - 89 births. Does
anyone know whether these latter records are available from civil
authorities or if someone can search them out? If so, who is a good
candidate? I have the dates of birth for two males but am searching to
verify the names of their parents and, prehaps, their respective ages.
For one person I have two dates of birth taken from SSA records (15
December 1889 and 28 December 1889 - I suspect the difference is the
Julian/Gregorian calendars) plus an Americanized version of his
parent's names. For the other, a unconfirmed birth date and really
sketchy parental data.
I would love to know if both had verifable siblings but it doesn't look
likely after six years of digging.

What is archived is on LDS fiches as follows:
LDS FICHES (set of 6) LDS #6000786
Survey of parish registers in Slovakia up to the time of civil
registration. Provides details of church records that are held in
Slovak archives. Index of villages is on fiche #6 and page
references refer to different religions. Most of these church records
are available on film via your LDS Family History Center.
My folks hail from Dubravka, also Zemplen Megye. For those records,
there is a 20-year gap in the archived and filmed records.
Mick Sura was able to locate the "bishops copy" in the archive in
Satoraljaujhely, Hungary, where he researched the 20-year gap for me.
