RE: [S-R] Nizne Matasari
- I think your Nizne Matasari is actually Nizne Matiasovce, now Liptovske
Matiasovce. In old Lipto county, its Hungarian name was Also-Matyasocz.
(Nizne and Also mean lower in Slovak and Hungarian.) If you look on a map
of Slovakia, you will find the villages of Nizne Liptovske Matiasovce,
Liptovske Matiasovce, and Vysne (upper) Liptovske Matiasovce lined up in a
row east of Ruzomberok, west of Liptovsky Mikulas.
LDS has Roman Catholic church records for this village available through
your local Family History Center.
