Don't know your surnames.
The Slovakia telephone directory lists 6 surname Vrábel.
2 surnames are listed under Vráble (Verebély) and 4 are listed under
Vranov nad Topl'ou (Vrannó) located in eastern Slovakia.
A gamekeeper was called a 'hájnik' and a mayor was a 'starosta'.
R.C. parish church records exist (1728-1896) for Vráble
okres (district) Nitra.
Text in Latin and Hungarian.
In Slovak the matriky (parish church records)

In Hungarian the matriky are titled anyakönyvek.

The LDS-Mormons has filmed all the parish church records at six of the
seven regional Slovak State Archives in Slovakia.
These microfilm reels are available for rental and viewing at any
Family History Center (FHC) worldwide.
90% of patrons are non-Mormons doing surname research.

The microfilm numbers for Vráble were not listed in the LDS-Mormon FHL
This is often the case for records filmed in the Nitra
The FHL online catalog is updated as of 1999.
So call the international desk 800 number at LDS HQ in Salt Lake City
and ask Sylvie Pysnaková where the R.C. parish records for Vráble
might be listed ?

Good luck !
For records from Budapest, Hungary you will need to contact the City
of Budapest Archives.
Need to write them in Hungarian.
Without name of district or a former address, such records are
difficult to locate.
Civil registration began in Hungary in 1895.
