      Kamenic^any (Sv) Kamenicsán (H) is located 75 miles NE
      of Bratislava and near Slávnica in western Slovakia.

      The LDS-Mormons have filmed the R.C. parish church records
      (1700-1896) for Bolesov, Slovakia, formerly Bolesó, Trencsén,
      Hungary. Includes affiliated towns of Slavnica, Podhorie, Sedmerovce
      and Kamenicany, Slovakia, formerly Szlavnicza, Podhorje,
      and Kamenicsán in Trencsén county, Hungary.
      Text in Latin and Hungarian.

      Wilhelm II when it was actually the Emperor Francis Joseph I as you
      The listener (clerk) usually wrote down what he thought he heard the
      immigrant say in response to his questions and nobody checked.
