      Hello Bob,

      Thank you for the explanation. It's not clear to me what your research
      objective is other than to collect names. If you would please answer the
      questions in my initial response, perhaps we could further the conversation.
      Sincerely,

      Bill

      Your assumption was correct I was directing the initial questions towards
      you.
      I apologize for leading you to believe that I would want you or anyone else
      to do our research. I was only asking for direction as to HOW not WHO.
      Again sorry for the poor wording on my part. For your information I have
      over 2000 names in my research, and have never ask anyone to more than
      perhaps verify some of my sources. I have used your web site and have found
      it to be helpful. 
      Bob

      Dear Bob and Elaine,
      I'm not sure who you are writing towards, so I'll assume it is I.

      I've written tons of stuff on Starina in English, far more than any other
      source. This includes where to find the church records. Certain records
      were destroyed during WW2 and my site describes those details. My web site
      has tons of of information on how to translate languages. Very little was
      written in Slovak. It is quite simple, you for the most part only need to
      translate the headers of the church ledgers, which are for the most part
      consistent.

      I stand firm on guiding your research and pointing out sources, but not do
      it for you. It's really quite simple, much data are easily available, the
      only substantial investment will be your time.

      What research have you already accomplished? Have you been to the Family
      History Center or browsed the FHL web site? My web pages offer detailed
      instructions on all of that.

      Why don't you get in touch with the several Americans who have traveled
      there? Their names are readily available.

      Good Luck,

      Bill Tarkulich

      I read your information about use of the FHL pilot database regarding church
      records of the villages that were cleared because of the Starina Reservoir
      project.
      my wife's relatives are from Zvala and we have photos of some of the
      relatives that are buried in the cemetery there. It would be nice to have
      additional info regarding births ,marriages , deaths and the other info
      usually found on those certificated regarding other relatives. The surnames
      involved are Makaj, and Kapko. The problem we have is that we do not read or
      write Slovak so finding the records is a problem but if the records
      themselves were available we could probably find someone to translate them.
      Any help that you could offer would help us in our continuing quest to
      add more pieces to the jigsaw puzzle.
       
      Thanks for the Zvala summer tour the pics were interesting

      Last night, I used the FHL Pilot database to do something that used to be
      very time-consuming - check neighboring villages for occurrences of a
      surname. Boy, was it easy and fast.

      In particular, I was looking for info on "lost" church records from the
      now-evacuated villages which were cleared for the Starina reservoir in far
      Eastern Slovakia. I was able to locate records for villages that were not
      noted in the FHL catalog. This is going to be a real time-saver and really
      help speed the process of searching the periphery of an area.

      Bill
