SKR phone directory, I found 24 Tichy' (male) and 21 Ticha (female) in
Z^ilina but none in Strazov which is just a couple of Km NW of
Z^ilina. The birth marriage and death records would be in Z^ilina. The
location would depend on their religion.
If you go to http://www.familysearch.org/eng/Library/FHLC/frameset_fhlc.asp
and search on Zilina, you may find something about the history of the area.
Also, go to http://www.zilina.sk/en/default.htm which is Z^ilina's
homepage. It has a 3 page history of the town.
