Nove Mesto nad Vahom . I have a birth place of Velke Polo for my uncle and
on his immigration papers ( to Australia) it says The village of Pole and
then Uherce , Topolcany . Does that help?
As you say there was no Czechoslovakia when any of my father's family was
born, but papers produced after 1920 say Czechoslovakia , my father told
me they were Slovak, there are relatives of my aunty's living in Nove Mesto
NV. I have got some limited information from them but like Oliver Twist I
I'll see if the FHC has films for Bánovce nad Bebravou.
Thanks for your help.

Just wondering, is "ahoj" pronounced "ahoy"? That is the greeting Alexander
Graham Bell said the first time he picked up the first phone, and is also the
greeting Montgomery Burns on the Simpson's show uses when he picks up the
phone. Does it mean "hello?"
