CHURCH RECORDS AT LATTER DAY SAINTS (MORMON) LDS FAMILY HISTORY
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
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
LDS has the 1869 Hungarian Census Film. Very informative.

You can go to the LDS web site to locate your nearest Family History

The old Hungarian map can be found at:
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.
