      Hi Listers,
      I am looking for the history of Roznava,Kosicky,Slovakia. I am
      trying to trace the Benko side of the family. They immigrated to U.S.
      between 1896 and 1902. I am particulary interested in what Roznava
      was called during that time. I am having great difficulty with the
      EIDB as there are so many Benko's with my given names immigrating at
      that time. Any help is greatly appreciated.

          Just a reminder : I noticed many of you might not fully understand the
          meaning of the second place listed in your records. Like "Kosicky" here. In
          this case Roznava is the town, KOSICE is the district. Slovakia is divided
          in several districts (I don`t now exactly how many right now, the system has
          been changed lately). The district of Koshice is "Kosicky kraj" in Slovak,
          as that of Nitra is "Nitriansky", Zilina "Zilinsky" and so on.
          I hope you got mu point inspite my bad English :-)

          Take care Andrea

              Andrea,
              It is much better than most of us can do in Slovak. Since the subject of
              kraj and okres comes up frequently, I thought I'd post this for
              reference. Could you tell us what the divisions below okres are? What is
              the smallest division? Our divisions vary with states. Do the
              subdivisions below okres vary depending upon the kraj?
