      I found this:


      (Szolyva-Nagy-Bisztra), kisközség Bereg vármegye szolyvai j.-ban, (1891)
      1836 rutén és német lak.; a járási szolgabirói hivatal széke, vasúttal,
      posta- és táviróhivatallal és postatakarékpénztárral. A község közelében
      bovizü hideg érvényes savanyuforrás fakad, mely szakszerüen kezelve kellemes
      üdíto ital gyanánt kerül forgalomba, de nagy szénsav- és sziksótartalma
      miatt emészto szervek és lélekzo szervek hurutjainál és köszvénynél itt jó
      sikerrel használják. A forrástelep tulajdonosa Schönborn Ervin gróf.

      > Well, I found out that oral history was in error and that there were
      records in the Archdiocese of Chicago of a wedding on June 22, 1912 but I
      didn't realize that the cost for a genealogical certificate went up to $20
      so I had not sent enough money, but they were very nice an sent a letter
      with the following information:
      > Joseph Tikal baptism was April of 1885, Tevischvalva South Hungary ( but
      no hits on the
      > ShtetlSeeker) so I think it is probably spelled wrong.
      > Helen Strauss baptism was May of 1891 Neudorf, South Hungary (many hits on
      the Shtetl Seeker)
      > They say some of the names appear in Latin.
      > I haven't received tapes from LDS yet from Saint Nicholas Church in
      > I was sort of leaning away form Vienna but now I think I might be around
      that area again.
      > Any information is gratefully appreciated, as I seem to be going around in
      > Thank you very much
