      Ellis Island site and never had any luck. After I got your post, I
      followed the link, expecting not to connect again, and this time I
      made it onto the site. I found my grandmother's entire family, minus
      her father, who I know came over earlier. Plus, I found some other
      names that I believe may be cousins of hers that came over from Kurima
      as well.
      > Next question -- according to the site, my grandmother was 5 months
      old when they arrived in late 1903. She always was adamant that she
      was born in the US, but I suspected otherwise from other stories I had
      heard. Any ideas on how I might find her birth record in Kurima? Is
      there a "vital records" or would it be better to go through the Roman
      Catholic church in the village for baptismal records?

      In Slovak the matriky (parish church records)
      Krstení = Baptisms (Christenings)
      Sobás^ení = Marriages
      Zomrelí = Deaths

      In Hungarian the matriky are titled anyakönyvek.

      Kereszteltek Anyakönyve = Baptism Records
      Házasultak Anyakönyve = Marriage Records
      Halottak Anyakönyve = Death Records

      During 1950-1951, the Communist government of Czechoslovakia had
      all the parish churches send their old matriky (pre-1895 church
      records) to the regional State Archives for safekeeping .
      This was done through local national committees after the church
      registers were declared state property by the government.
