Polacek. His fathers name was Mickala Polacek, and his mothers name
was Zuzanna Gabanyi. If anyone has any information or could find
either birth,church, or baptismal records or family members that I
could communicate with. I would appreciate it very much.

Highly unlikely there is any information about such a small village
on the Web.
There are other small villages nearby as well, Dukovce, Kuková,etc.
Think Z^elmanovce-Dukovce is now one village.
Their inhabitants might be lucky to even have a telephone ?
Would suppose there is little opportunity for earning a livelhood
in small villages today.
The Slovakia telephone directory lists 10 surname Polác^ek under
The directory also lists 3 surname Gabányi (which looks Hungarian)
What was surname religion ? R.C. G.C. or Lutheran ?
