  • Frank, this is just nonsense. Once you get referred to the historical document, you will see any diacritics that may be present at that time. This is no different than what the LDS Family Search does. You don't need to put in the diacritics in their search engine either. Most of us are experienced enough to judge the final document as to whether it is the correct ancestor's name.

  • Frank, I agree with Catherine that the accent marks should be left off to help facilitate putting this file together. She is not creating a historical document here. She is just creating an index of names to help people find the military personnel records for their ancestor. There are thousands of soldiers in the grundbuchblatter for each regiment. It would be a big burden to have...

  • Michael, I believe you are mistaken about Ellis Island. It opened in 1892 and replaced the Castle Garden immigration center in that year. CK

  • I've now added an example of the grundbuchblatter images and a translation for my great-grandfather, Andras Kotlarcsik in the 1860s. And now I've been contacted by an individual who found his ancestor in IR40 after searching for about an hour. Fantastic!

  • I've uploaded some military records to the files section under the title Kotlarchik AH Military Records. These are from the Musterlisten und Standestabellen for IR19 in 1799 and 1804. These are the records for my 3rd great-grandfather, Andrej Kotlartsik. I've also transcribed the records and translated them so that you can see what type of information they contain. By determining...

  • It has just become easier to find military records for the Austro-Hungarian Army. The LDS has placed thousands of military records on line covering the years of 1742 to 1869 for all types of regiments. Muster lists are available for the years of 1742 to 1820 and Grundbuchblatter (personnel records) are available from 1820 to 1869. I was able to find my great-grandfather's personnel...

  • Bit off topic, but is their a simple way to send small amounts of money to Europe? I was very surprised at the cost of an international bank transfer through my local bank. Got to be a cheaper way.

  • Michelle, I did the Family Tree Y-DNA test a couple of years ago. After I saw your SR post, I went to the site but don't see anything about the Geni database. How do you connect your results to it? CK

  • Jamie, My maternal family was also from Snina and I see that from the birth records for the town, that our extended family lines cross. Consequently, I would be interested in sharing information with you. As I'm sure you know, the church records for Snina held in the Slovak archives are incomplete which makes tracing family lines back beyond the early 1800s difficult if not...
