Re: [SLOVAK-ROOTS] Hopchak surname from Czenho, Slovakia
select "PLACE SEARCH" and enter the name of your town. You will find:
Cirkevná matrika, 1817-1899 Cirkev grécko-katolícka. Farský úrad Snakov
(Bardejov) film numbers 1793684 Item 7 and 1793685 Items 1-7.
Cirkevná matrika, 1789-1906 Cirkev rímsko-katolícka. Farský úrad Ruskov (Kosice)
Cirkevná matrika, 1798-1896 Cirkev grécko-katolícka. Farský úrad Slanské Nové
1981436 Items 3-4, 1924879, 1924880 Items 1-2, 1924856 Items 4-7
The "Items" give you the section location on the film.
You will have to "rent" the films for something like $3.25 for a 2 week period.
The rental can be renewed for another $3.25 and after you have renewed the rental
three (3) times, the film will be identified as on indefinite loan, which means
it will stay at the center for a very long time. So for about $10 per film, you
can look forever, and you can do this in $3 increments.
Just a note in e-mail/list operations. If you leave the previous message or at
least a part of it when you reply, it provides a thread to follow. Some members
keep every e-mail they receive. Some delete the e-mail as soon as it is
answered. I follow the latter practice. Fortunately, I did not empty the
"trash" so I could look up the names of the towns. I have added the earlier

Snakov 16 km west of Bardejov at the end of the road, 4 km south of the Polish
border, 70 km north of Košice, and about 350 km northeast of Bratislava. It is
in the old hungarian county of Sáros.
Can't find Ruskoo, but it may be Ruskov, 12 km east of Košice. It would be in
the area of the old Hungarian county of Zemplén.
All of the information you have is correct within the time frame. Before W.W.I,
Slovakia was Hungary (sometimes designated as Austria due to the "duel" monarchy
of Austro-Hungary; - - - such nonsense as a "dual mono" existed back then too!).
Czechoslovakia was a fabrication after W.W.I and W.W.II.
You have very good data and should look at LDS Family History Films when ever it
is convenient. The church records in those areas should be microfilmed. Was
Mary Baranchik Greek Catholic, most of the population in that area was.
