              The first sentence basically says the surname SALAJ in the year 1995 was found 440 time in 107 locations. The major locations are: then they list the major ones, but not all 107.
              The listing is first) the name of the city , town or village. Second is "okr" or Okres, the County or District name. Sometimes a "obec" comes second, which is the name of an area within a city. Then they give the number of times Salaj was found.
              There are 72 Okres in Slovakia. They are in 8 Kraj or States. I see that 110 Salaj live in Eastern Slovakia. Ben found 2 Salay that has an accent on the A. And 378 where there is no accent on the A.
              The Salay family is definitely concentrated around Bratislava.

                  Christine,
                  Usovsky Salgov is a small village not to far out of the city of Sabinov on Highway 68.
                  Highway 68 is the one I drive on to get from Presov to Hromos, about 33 miles.
                  Sabinov is about 9 miles west out of Presov on Highway 68.
                  From the list below you can see that Salay and Salayova surnames are listed. I would think that these are relatives of yours. I do not think that would be from your grandfather's sister's family. If she married she would have a different surname. The Salay is a male and should be connected to the family line. Salayova is female, but you do not know if this is her original surname or a married surname. More than likely she is the wife of the Salay listed. Nonetheless, with your family history in the village and someone with the Salay surname it is more than likely they are related to you somehow. You have their house numbers. So you can write them.
                  In the mean time go through the village website, especially the Fotogaleria: http://www.uzovskysalgov.sk/

                    Christine,
                    Usovsky Salgov is a small village not to far out of the city of Sabinov on Highway 68.
                    Highway 68 is the one I drive on to get from Presov to Hromos, about 33 miles.
                    Sabinov is about 9 miles west out of Presov on Highway 68.
                    From the list below you can see that Salay and Salayova surnames are listed. I would think that these are relatives of yours. I do not think that would be from your grandfather' s sister's family. If she married she would have a different surname. The Salay is a male and should be connected to the family line. Salayova is female, but you do not know if this is her original surname or a married surname. More than likely she is the wife of the Salay listed. Nonetheless, with your family history in the village and someone with the Salay surname it is more than likely they are related to you somehow. You have their house numbers. So you can write them.
                    In the mean time go through the village website, especially the Fotogaleria: http://www.uzovskys algov.sk/

                      Hello Michael,
                      How could I ever thank you, for all the help you have given me and are now
                      offering.
                      I have thought about this family so long, (26 years), I feel like a part of
                      it now.
                      Grandfather Stefan Makara,(1861-1929)came to Philadelphia,Pa, in 1884. He
                      left behind his parents, Iohannes/Jan Makara, * ca. 1820, and Maria
                      Olsavszká. Jan was a carpenter/wheelright and owned a house. Stephen had a
                      brother Andrew and sister Barbara.
                      Borbala Makara (*29 Nov 1858) married 18 Feb 1878, Mihaly SZALAY, 29 years
                      old, born in Uzovsky Salgo and prob. died in 1899. He was a
                      man-servant/groomsman. They had 11 children, 5 died in infancy. (scource:
                      church records). The others are: Karoly,*26 Jan 1878, Miklos, *25 Sept 1882,
                      Istvan Ferencz, *7 Jan 1885, Lujza, *19 Dec 1887, Anna Ilona, *25 May 1893,
                      Ilona Zsofia, * 8 May 1895
                      We have an undated photo of the parents and four children. They look very
                      grand
                      I looked in the white pages for Slovakia, but didn't see Szalay or Salay in
                      Presov.

                      We have part of a letter from Presov asking grandfather to give his approval
                      to sell the house in 1907. At that time the brother Andrew must have died,
                      because his children Verona and Stefanovi, are listed as heirs. Question :
                      is Stefanovi male or female?
                      .
                      The other thing I might mention. In those same church books, I saw, what
                      could be brothers of Jan Makara.
                      Greorgius Makara, * 1826, and Andreas Makara, * 1831. Andreas was a
                      bricklayer. Their parents are Mihaly Makara and Maria Duchan/Dochan. Ioannes
                      Makara, asciarius, was a witness at the wedding of Andreas Makara in 1861.
                      But, I can't find Jan's birthdate or name of parents. So, that's were I am
                      stuck! But already I know more about the Family, then I would have ever
                      thought, or anybody in the family knows.
                      Asking your cousins to help in this search, is really a big thing. Maybe
                      these good people in Presov might not want anything to do with me, because I
                      don't represent the Family. I try to share what I find, but there is no
                      resounding response.

                      What you said about the differences in the birthdates makes sense. Thank
                      you.

                      Christine

                      Christine,
                      I can appreciate the fact that there is just so far you may want to pursue a
                      family line. My mother's paternal side is such a case. With the great-grand
                      parents being house servants their trail is virtually impossible to follow.
                      They arrived in Sarisske Michal'any. Grandfather was born there. His birth
                      is the only record of them being there. No other children born. Their deaths
                      not found there. If they left for another household, who knows where.
                      I have to let you know that my Mother's maternal line continues in Presov. I
                      use Presov as my base when I'm in Slovakia. In six trips I have now "lived"
                      there for over three months. My mother's cousin is a Jozef Sopko. He, two
                      sons, a son-in-law and now a grandson have been firemen in Presov. Grandson
                      Lubo is now a Captain. So I can offer a Presov connection in your search for
                      the Szalay. With the 'z' in the name after the "S" I would guess that this
                      is a Hungarian spelling of the name. I would not be surprised that the "z"
                      is not used in the Latin or Slovak records. So you might be searching for a
                      Salay. Let me know what you have on this family.
                      Your question asked, Why the family sources that listed a birth date were
                      different from the church records. For most church records the recording is
                      done in conjunction with the baptism. Most often this was done a day or two
                      after the birth. So it was an immediate action following the birth. When the
                      birth was recorded in the "family source" is usually not given. It could be
                      from days to years after the birth. The longer after the more likely a
                      discrepancy can happen. There were not many calendars hanging in homes back
                      in the 1800's. So just keeping track of what date it is vs. what day it is
                      was a little more difficult. And certainly not as much as a necessity as it
                      is now. I do as you; use the church record as the "official" one and make
                      note of what was in other sources.

                      Michael,

                      Thank you for offering the help your cousin could give me. I think there are
                      too many generations between now and the time the grandparents left there in
                      the 1880's. As far as I can see, there is no family left in the Secovce
                      area. Besides KRISO, some of the other names there, were KONTER and LESKO. I
                      think, that I could have a chance with the Makara's and the Szalay Family in
                      Presov. Maybe!
                      In the 1869 Census, Mihal Kriso gives his birthplace as Berettö/Bracovce.
                      The Mormons have a film from the Greek Cath. Church. I might get that.
                      Secovce was also filmed and I should get that too.
                      Yes, I have been traveling around Juraj Cisarik's sites. He is really
                      marvellous. Now all I have to do , is learn to read Slovak. I will have to
                      get at least a dictionary!
                      Here is something else, that puzzles me : the birthdate family scources give
                      for the grandparents, is different, than what I found in the church records.
                      I should think, the church records are the correct ones, I'll just note the
                      family scource ones.

                      Thank you again for all your time,
                      Christine

Maybe more distant relatives came over, but we don't know that. There is another Makara Family here in Philadelphia, and I visited with them about 20 or so years ago, but I was told, that we are not related.

                        brother Andrew and sister Barbara.
                        Borbala Makara (*29 Nov 1858) married 18 Feb 1878, Mihaly SZALAY, 29 years
                        old, born in Uzovsky Salgo and prob. died in 1899. He was a
                        man-servant/groomsman. They had 11 children, 5 died in infancy. (scource:
                        church records). The others are: Karoly,*26 Jan 1878, Miklos, *25 Sept 1882,
                        Istvan Ferencz, *7 Jan 1885, Lujza, *19 Dec 1887, Anna Ilona, *25 May 1893,
                        Ilona Zsofia, * 8 May 1895
                        We have an undated photo of the parents and four children. They look very
                        grand
                        I looked in the white pages for Slovakia, but didn't see Szalay or Salay in
                        Presov.

                        We have part of a letter from Presov asking grandfather to give his approval
                        to sell the house in 1907. At that time the brother Andrew must have died,
                        because his children Verona and Stefanovi, are listed as heirs. Question :
                        is Stefanovi male or female?
                        .
                        The other thing I might mention. In those same church books, I saw, what
                        could be brothers of Jan Makara.
                        Greorgius Makara, * 1826, and Andreas Makara, * 1831. Andreas was a
                        bricklayer. Their parents are Mihaly Makara and Maria Duchan/Dochan. Ioannes
                        Makara, asciarius, was a witness at the wedding of Andreas Makara in 1861.
                        But, I can't find Jan's birthdate or name of parents. So, that's were I am
                        stuck! But already I know more about the Family, then I would have ever
                        thought, or anybody in the family knows.
                        Asking your cousins to help in this search, is really a big thing. Maybe
                        these good people in Presov might not want anything to do with me, because I
                        don't represent the Family. I try to share what I find, but there is no
                        resounding response.

                        What you said about the differences in the birthdates makes sense. Thank
                        you.

                        Christine,
                        I can appreciate the fact that there is just so far you may want to pursue a
                        family line. My mother's paternal side is such a case. With the great-grand
                        parents being house servants their trail is virtually impossible to follow.
                        They arrived in Sarisske Michal'any. Grandfather was born there. His birth
                        is the only record of them being there. No other children born. Their deaths
                        not found there. If they left for another household, who knows where.
                        I have to let you know that my Mother's maternal line continues in Presov. I
                        use Presov as my base when I'm in Slovakia. In six trips I have now "lived"
                        there for over three months. My mother's cousin is a Jozef Sopko. He, two
                        sons, a son-in-law and now a grandson have been firemen in Presov. Grandson
                        Lubo is now a Captain. So I can offer a Presov connection in your search for
                        the Szalay. With the 'z' in the name after the "S" I would guess that this
                        is a Hungarian spelling of the name. I would not be surprised that the "z"
                        is not used in the Latin or Slovak records. So you might be searching for a
                        Salay. Let me know what you have on this family.
                        Your question asked, Why the family sources that listed a birth date were
                        different from the church records. For most church records the recording is
                        done in conjunction with the baptism. Most often this was done a day or two
                        after the birth. So it was an immediate action following the birth. When the
                        birth was recorded in the "family source" is usually not given. It could be
                        from days to years after the birth. The longer after the more likely a
                        discrepancy can happen. There were not many calendars hanging in homes back
                        in the 1800's. So just keeping track of what date it is vs. what day it is
                        was a little more difficult. And certainly not as much as a necessity as it
                        is now. I do as you; use the church record as the "official" one and make
                        note of what was in other sources.

                        Michael,

                        Thank you for offering the help your cousin could give me. I think there are
                        too many generations between now and the time the grandparents left there in
                        the 1880's. As far as I can see, there is no family left in the Secovce
                        area. Besides KRISO, some of the other names there, were KONTER and LESKO. I
                        think, that I could have a chance with the Makara's and the Szalay Family in
                        Presov. Maybe!
                        In the 1869 Census, Mihal Kriso gives his birthplace as Berettö/Bracovce.
                        The Mormons have a film from the Greek Cath. Church. I might get that.
                        Secovce was also filmed and I should get that too.
                        Yes, I have been traveling around Juraj Cisarik's sites. He is really
                        marvellous. Now all I have to do , is learn to read Slovak. I will have to
                        get at least a dictionary!
                        Here is something else, that puzzles me : the birthdate family scources give
                        for the grandparents, is different, than what I found in the church records.
                        I should think, the church records are the correct ones, I'll just note the
                        family scource ones.

                        Thank you again for all your time,
                        Christine

                            I concur. I've learned from my other genealogy research not to discard anything. Many times people I've queried are quick to dismiss the possibility of relationships (There are many reasons for this.) before really looking into it---wrong town, I don't recognize the name, etc. I always keep files of "possibles" and don't get rid of anything in them unless I'm convinced there's absolutely no connection. Sometimes people are wrong, and it works both ways: some people quickly jump to the conclusion that there IS a relationship without adequate proof.
