Re: [S-R] Surname Mrnka, Svancarek, Steinhubel, Hudek
- Hi, Joe. Are you at all familiar with the Family Research Library? And
have you looked at our hostess' own website at Rootsweb? These are the A
and B of the ABC's... sounds like you have a lot of good information to
start with. What we all like to do is to obtain microfilms of the church
records for our families in Slovakia. In some cases these go back to the
mid-18th century or earlier. They are a goldmine. I found out more about
my family than the distant relatives in Slovakia know, because they have not
spent months going through the records!
