      > Ah, thank you Michael. I also think I was confusing "districts" and "counties". I knew which names belonged to which periods - well, at least for Miklosvagas/Miklusovce, but the district/county thing tripped me up.

And they were in the Hungarian county of Saros/Saris. http://lazarus.elte.hu/hun/maps/1910/saros.jpg Look for the pink area, Eperjes is Presov. In the lower left you can see the name Miklosvagas and Szarosvolgy. The villages are now in Slovak District Presov, which contains the old Hungarian Saros/Saris county.

      > > Well, David, I guess I need more help than I thought, lol! Geez, I thought I was looking in Presov county. I don't even know what county I'm in! My first thought when I saw "Szaros" was that perhaps that meant "Saris", but I wondered why my ancestors would come from Saris county to Presov county to baptize their kid. I guess I have some learning to do. Geography has always been a weak spot for me. So thanks for pointing this out to me!

I will keep an eye out for your names and let you know. I think I do recall a Kovalcik or two, and perhaps some Takacs - but I have also been searching Ujvaros and the Takac name there is distantly in my tree, so I may be thinking of my Ujvaros research. But I will let you know if and what I find.
