Re: [S-R] Any idea what this town is now called?
I had a similar problem last week. My target village wasn't listed and as I worked my way out to other villages they were missing also.
I posted my dilemma and Bill was able to come through with the answer. Even though my target village was much bigger today than other surrounding villages, at the time of the records the parish churches were in other nearby villages. So all three Christian denominations were located in a different village. In order to see all those records you would have to request three different village's films.
Maybe Bill can help you.

Note that on the ship manifest, Stefan's nearest relative lives in "N.
It seems odd to me that Nagylevard would not be listed as having been
filmed. Its population was about 2300. Yet Kislevard, which was very close
by, IS there, population only about 1300.
I forgot to include the address for the Pozsony map:

I can't save or copy the EI document on Stefan Schinansz, year born
1883, but I did the search again and found him. I've also been
looking on the map and don't see anything close either. As for the
Budapest reference, I don't know how true that is at all, just family
lore and nothing to document this at all.
As silly as it sounds, my brothers and I always joked he was make-
believe because I was never able to find any documentation on him (he
died before we were born).
Thanks for looking - Doris

my eye could not find anything that looked like Tsoklo or what I
thought looked more like Tsuklo.
