      Hi Marge,
      In researching LDS films in Poland and Slovakia, it does not really hinder
      you with the language. with the records you most likely will order, the
      records will be mostly in Latin except for the period when Hungary ruled and
      inforced their language on all records. i found this aspect to be brief as
      far as church records are concerned, Latin is the main one.
      all church ledgers are basically set up the same. there will be columns of
      data. starts off with column one being date of birth, column two being the
      date of baptism, column three being the given name of the child, then the
      sex, legitimacy, parents' names, village of origin, godparents' names etc.
      etc.
      so once you figure out the columns (LDS family history centers will usually
      have some material on how to read these in the language), you can usually
      figure it out. it becomes second nature to you.
      Harder it is to find the villages and order the correct film. once you have
      the correct film, the language is the least of your problems. At least the
      Latin, Polish and Hungarian are not too difficult. Russian would be hard,
      for sure.
