" Vlastivedny' slovník obcí na Slovensku "(Bratislava, SAV, 1977-78).
In three volumes, which gives the basic geographic, historical, and
cultural information about every city, town, and small village in
the country (about 3300 of them). Produced during the Socialist
period, it has a Marxist bias, but is very, very good source material:
Census statistics every 10 years 1869-1970, early geographical name,
county, early and modern history, important architectural monuments,
detailed maps of the country, and, in many cases, a photograph. It
does not include demographic material such as the predominant
nationality or religion of a village: Most towns are Slovak, but there
are Rusyn and Magyar villages and some still have a sizable
German-speaking minority. This marvelous source book is in Slovak, is
out of print, but if you can consult a copy it will give you the
basics about your ancestral Slovak village.
The overpriced Canadian source sells these 3 volumes in the $475.00
That is US $ not Slovak koruna.
