A Ilava is located 78 miles NE of Bratislava near Dubnica nad
in western Slovakia.
Before WW I, it was located in Trencsén Megye (county)
A Ilava is located 76 miles east of Bratislava , near Santovka
and close to the current Hungarian Border.
Formerly it was located in Nyitra Megye (county)
Too bad your GM didn't originate in the former Ilava.
The LDS-Mormons filmed its R.C. parish church records for the
period 1673-1934 (over 250 years of records)
The latter Ilava is tiny and has no church.
Looked at the nearby villages with churches but can't determine
where the inhabitants from Ilava attended church ?
What was surname religion ?
30 surname Mutnansky are listed in the Social Security Death Index.
The surnames listed above under PA would have been coal miners
in SW PA.
In Slovakia, which was part of the kingdom of Hungary, censuses were
enumerated according to Hungarian law.
Only four census enumerations made in Hungary have survived and
are available on microfilm.
But, neither their dates (1828, 1848, 1857, 1869) nor the counties,
i.e. Nyitra (Nitra) apply.
