      I had replied to your surname query on 23 May 2002, but didn't
      give you the microfilm numbers for Hniezdne (Kniesen) parish church
      records (at end of this message)

      Before you travel to Hniezdne next year , do some research of
      your surname's parish church records through local LDS FHC.

      Before WW I, Slovakia was part of Upper Hungary (Felvidék) and
      part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire (1867-1918) and earlier a
      part of Hungary under the Austrian Empire.
      Hungarian names were used for towns and counties.

      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.

      Some parish churches kept duplicate copies of the records.
      Druhopisy (i.e. second writing) was a duplicate copy known as the
      'bishop's copy'. So a duplicate of the original record may have been
      sent elsewhere.
      Some years have both parish records and "bishop's copies". Other
      have only "bishop's copies", others only the parish registers. That
      can explain why a record may not be available at the parish but still
      be available elsewhere.
      From 1828, the parish was obliged to make a copy of entries and
      send them to archives, so some records are preserved in duplicate.

      The LDS-Mormons has filmed all the parish church records at six
      of the seven Slovak State Archives in Slovakia.

      These microfilm reels are available for rental and viewing at any
      Family History Center (FHC) worldwide.
      90% of patrons are non-Mormons doing surname research.
