Re: Villlage name
- The new or Slovak name of Szeben is Sabinov. It is north of Presov. Before
WW1 it was part of Hungary.
I've been trying to get info from a recent city directory or phone book
from that city. Surprised that travelers to Slovakia can't bring one back to
USA or is that restricted material ?
Anyone know if there are genealogy groups in Slovakia ? Or is there little
interest since they "know where they came from"?
- Hi, I don't think the Family Search website knows that I exist. Kis Szeben
was easier than many of them -- I had just puzzled it out when my friend Joe
Armata confirmed it. The word Kis means Little, so I looked for a phonetic
match to Szeben in the area, which was Sabinov, a good sized town. I have
not checked yet but the Family History Library ought to have records for
that place. My experience with the LDS database is that it is great when
you know exactly what you are looking for but not until! :-)
