      The LDS-Mormons filmed the R.C. matriky (1787-1895) for Liptovská
      Lúz^na, Slovakia, formerly Luzsna (H), Liptó megye (county), Hungary.
      Text in Latin and Hungarian.

      film #

      Originals are at the regional Slovak Archives at Bytc^a where the LDS
      is just finishing filming records.

      Next comes the main Bratislava Archives where filming will probably
      take LDS another 2-3 years.

      Vysoká pri Morave is located 164 miles SE of Praha in Slovakia.
      Hochstetno in Czech ? Hochstadt in German (meaning high town)
      In Magyar its name was Nagymagasfalu (meaning big + top +
      ville (village)
      The LDS-Mormons didn't film the R.C. matriky (1648-1895) for Vysoká
      pri Morave as yet because these are under the Bratislava Archives.
      But, R.C. parish church records (1648-1895) do exist for Vysoká pri
      Probably written in Latin, Hungarian, and German ?

      So you will need to write the the Main Archives (Archív hlavného
      mesta Bratislavy) to research your surname records.
      Their narrative research report will be written in Slovak, not
      If you don't know Slovak you would need to get their research report

      There are three different rates.
      Clerical, the cheapest, the basic research, and the most difficult,
      the more expensive.
      They will do research you request then send you a bill which you must
      pay before they send the information.

      Huba means mouth or mushroom in Slovak.

        "Mine" is the Cierne Pole which is very close to the Ukraine border. I thought it translated to Black Field. However, I did not know that another meaning for "Pole" is boundary. So, that does make sense, as I believe it is about 8 km from the border. Perhaps it's both. My ancestors were farmers and horse traders and I think the farmland was very rich and dark.

        Hopefully we shall be visiting the village again this year while on our up-coming trip.
