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.
