      >>> born abt 1829, in Sarriska Trstena, Slovakia and he died in
      November 1889 in Zelmanovce, Slovakia. He was married to Susanna
      Gabanyi who was born 1816 in Velky Saris, and also died in the same
      village Zelmanovce in 1889. <<<

      Have you researched the church records at your local LDS Family
      History Center? The very informative 1869 Hungarian Census is also
      available for those villages.

      CHURCH RECORDS AT LATTER DAY SAINTS (MORMON) LDS FAMILY HISTORY
      CENTER (FHC)
      The Mormons have been microfilming historic vital records worldwide
      for decades as part of their mission. The Mormons make their
      collection available to anyone for viewing at their Family History
      Centers (FHC). The microfilms are stored in Salt Lake City. When you
      visit a center, you can "rent" a microfilm, by paying a small fee
      (abt. $5 per film). The center will order the film on your behalf and
      notify you when it arrives at their center. You can then use reserve
      the microfilm readers to view these records.

      There's one more thing to keep in mind about the FHC. For the most
      part, the FHC volunteers will know NOTHING about research in Slovakia
      or about the contents of the films. The volunteer may know about
      his/her own heritage, but that is about it. That's where you need
      groups like this to point you in the right direction.

      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
      (zomreli).

      LOCATE YOUR NEAREST FAMILY HISTORY CENTER AND ORDER FILM
      You can go to the Latter Day Saints (LDS) web site to locate your
      nearest Family History Center (FHC) and determine their hours of
      operation. You will need to go there in person to order the film(s).
      In about a month, the film will arrive and you can book a film reader
      and begin your research.
