Re: [S-R] Records dilemma!
- Dear Jen:
Hello! What are the surnames that you are researching in KALAVA? My
great, great grandmother THERESA ONDERCIN (also spelled ONDERCSIN and
ONDERTSIN) was from the village of KALAVA. She was the daughter of JACOB ONDERCIN
and MARIA KOVALCIK (also spelled KOVALCSIK and KOVALTSIK). With our
ancestors in the same small village, I believe that there is a good possibility
that we may have a family connection somewhere down the line.
Below are the surnames in my direct lineage. Please feel free to write me
directly at _David1Law@..._ (mailto:David1Law@...) (the "1" is a

I have a bit of a dilemma. I am researching my Great-Grandmother's
ancestors in Kal'ava, Gelnica, Slovakia. Unfortunately, the records go from
1722-1750 and 1820-1911. According to a letter in the front of the 1820 records
written half in slovak, half in hungarian, the 1751-1819 records have been
destroyed in a fire.
I have gone to all the neighboring towns and looked through everything to
try to find births, deaths, marriages. I've only unearthed a handful of
