      BASIC RESEARCH HELP
      For basic research help, be sure to visit Bill Tarkulich's excellent
      site at http://www.iabsi.com/gen/public/

      Petrovce nad Laborcom and Topolany (from another rely) are adjacent
      villages. Just north of Michalovce.

      CURRENT MAP
      To locate places in Europe, especially if you are not sure of the
      proper spelling of the place name, the best reference is found at
      http://www.jewishgen.org/ShtetlSeeker/loctown.htm

      ShtetlSeeker will take you there via Mapquest, Multimap or Google.

      What RELIGION is the family?

      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 The church
      records cover baptisms (krsteni), marriages (sobeseni) and deaths
      (zomreli).

      LDS has church records for Topolany that are indexed as BOTH GC and
      RC. It's anybodies guess which is correct. "Grécko-katolícka cirkev.
      Farský úrad Topolany (Michalovce). Roman Catholic parish register of
      births, marriages, and deaths for Topolany, Slovakia; formerly
      Topolyán, Zemplén."

      LDS has the 1869 Hungarian Census Film. Very informative.
      Petõfalva (Petejovce) -- Petrahó (Bodroghalász = Sárospatak) --
      Petrik (Petrikovce) -- Petrócz (Petrovce) Film #722767

      Topoloka (Topolovka) -- Topolya (Topola) -- Topolyán (Topolany) --
      Tokaj Film #720007

      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/zemplen.jpg

      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.

      Happy squinting!

        URL twice is the vestige of using rich text, which creates a hyperlink as
        part of the displayed text. Since Yahoogroups uses only plain text, you end
        up seeing both, even if they are identical.

        Aside from rthe fact that you show the URL TWICE, it works fine.
