- I'm trying to found village or town that Great-grandfather was from. He's social security appliciation states that he was born Feb 14, 1881 in Siroke, Cechoslovakia, but I was told that it is now Slovakia. His parents are Andrew Estock and Mary Sofranko. I can't find anywhere where they came into the states. I hope this helps.
great-grandson of Walter Estock
- I agree with John.
The records are on film, but not online.

I don't know where you got your (mis)information from but the village is
still on maps and the church records are available at your nearest LDS
Family History Center.
The small village is located 2.5 km southwest of Ladomerska Vieska.
LDS has Roman Catholic and Evangelical parish registers of baptisms,
marriages, deaths, and confirmations for Hornie Opatovce (Horne Opatowce,
Horne Opatowcze, HornÃ OpÃ¡towce), Slovakia formerly FelsÅ`-ApÃ¡thi
(FelschÅ`-ApÃ¡thi, FelsÅ`apÃ¡ti, Opatdorf), Bars, Hungary.
