I am looking for information on Andrew buchko, born 1875, died 1935 in NJ.
He was "Slavic" and from the list we were able to identify writing on an old

The parish records for Jasenov have been filmed by the LDS Library but begin
in 1880. Is there any place I could find out if there are earlier records?
Should I write to the church (in English - I don't have any letter forms for

through the service offered through the Embassy. Would this be the best
route. At this point I don't know for sure that he was from Jasenov.
