      To answer your question about FHC films on Slovakian data, I have not found
      a way to pull up a master list of their church record holdings. You have to
      know the town you want, which is tricky for many reasons, not the least of
      which is that people often went to church in a neighboring town. There is a
      publication that lists all this information, available on microfiche in most
      if not all Family History Libraries. You can also call Salt Lake City and
      speak to someone at the International Desk.

      They have not completed filming the whole country yet -- south central
      Slovakia, the archives from Banska' Bystrica, is not yet available.

      It s also tricky because there seems to be no consistent pattern about what language the town name is in. For example, the current names are usually not the

        It's also tricky because there seems to be no consistent pattern about
        what language the town name is in. For example, the current names are
        usually not the ones they are listed under, tho it's noted in the
        description. If you put in Sabinov (current name) in the computer,
        nothing comes up, as it's under Kis-Zeben, but the Hungarian census
        listing is under the Latin name of Cibinium.

        Also, the country is not always given as Slovak Republic.. many are
        under Austria or more of them Hungary. Some Czechoslovakia. I've seen
        one or two references to records held in Poland now, so they are listed
        under that.

        Basically, if its a certain town you are interested in, you need to get
        all the names of it through the years and check all the possibilities.
        The Slovak Republic is generally well filmed, but finding them can be
        tricky.

        As someone said, if you get really stuck, call the main library in SLC.
        Chances are there is no volunteer at your local FHC who can help you
        with this, unless they are also researching in the Austria-Hungary area.
