Gemerska (Gemerska-malohontska) It looks your version was perhaps the
Hungarian version. I don't know Hungarian but I noticed this map:
http://lazarus.elte.hu/hun/maps/1910/gomork.jpg which is labeled Gomor es
Kis-Hont Varmegye (county). Mehi (48º 23' and 20º 18') is just southwest
of Tornalja on this 1910(?) map.

Austria Hungary. I believe the dual kingdom was established in
1867. Technically she would be Hungarian before 1919 and then
Czechoslovakian. She could have been a Slovak living there. What language
did she speak?

Shtetlseeker http://www.jewishgen.org/ShtetlSeeker/loctown.htm and use
Slovakia for the country, it will give you the coordinates for Mehi (now
Vc^elince). Click on the highlighted coordinates and it will give you a
current map. What religion were they? I may be able to tell you where you
might find the church records, although based on your signature line and
location, you should be easily able to find the records.

However, I do read/write Hungarian.
Pre-WW I Hungary was divided into 76 administrative units called megye
(counties)and Zemplén megye was the eastern most county in what is
Administrative (political) term 'county' was always megye or vármegye
And 'district' was called a járás.
Pre-1923 Slovak 'counties' were called z^upy or stolice and 'region'
was kraj in Slovak.
The term z^upa was discontinued in 1923, when the term okres
(district) was introduced.
Gömör-és-Kis-Hont vármegye , Hungary was called Gemer-Malohont z^upa
és = and (conj)
kis = little (adj)
ma'lo = small
R.C. parish church records (1769-1895) exist for Vc^elince (Sk)
As to whether the LDS-Mormons have already filmed them ?
Call International desk 800 number for the LDS HQ in Salt Lake
City, UT, USA and ask ?
A toll free number 1-800-453-3860, extension 2881.
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.
