      "cz" is the same sound as Slovak "c". The names can be written in Hungarian
      such as Polacsik in Hungarian alphabet is our Polac~ik.

      Hi Pam

      I'm interested in your question about the name Rolenc becoming Lorenc[z]. I
      have no answer, but have the same situation in my family tree...the "R" and "L"
      switching places in the Rolencz name. I have to wonder if this is unique to
      Gbely and maybe a particular dyslexic scribe, since it happened in my family in
      the early 1800's too. If it was a transcription error it would have been noticed
      and corrected in subsequent entries I would think. You also mention Lorenc
      sometimes ending in "c" and sometimes in "z". In my lineage it is most usually
      ended in "cz".

      With respect;
      Your far distant cousin; Larry

      Pavel Lorenc' father was Vincent Lorenc and Vincent was a brother to my husbands
      grreat grandfather Ludwig. It took me years to prove the connection, but
      finally have the church records for proof.

      Because Ludwig often went by Lorenz not Lorenc and Pavel children switched to
      Lorence in most cases, they did not believe me when I told them they were
      related. Richard's children were thrilled to see all I had found.

      I still am not sure how they went from Rolenc to Lorenc in the early 1800's,
      anyone know why that change would come about?

      I agree with you Franta,

      My Grandmothers Birth Home, (the first in the town to have a tile roof), is
      Kuty100, Located on Bratislavska Ulica.


      Although the house numbers remain, it does not indicate the family still lives

      there. Pavel Lorenc's brother moved to Kuklov, where he raised his children. I

      knew his wife and visited her often as did his nephew Richard Lorenc, (from
      Johnstown, NY), now deceased.
      I did meet a son who lived in Malacky and visited his mother very often.
      The Lady was extremely proud of her "Old Fashioned Home" and kept the
      traditional brick, and tiled stove in her kitchen. Pani Loerncova was Really
      nice lady. My friends aunt, Helena Somolana, was her best friend and neighbor.

      All are now gone.

      Z Bohom,

      More than likely you will find the house numbers.

      In some villages, the houses have been renumbered but the old numbers are
      still on the house. The new numbers are a different color. As I recall the
      change was made because originally the numbers were issued in the date
      sequence that the houses were built, i.e., in chronically order. But
      because the villages have grown in size it was necessary to renumber the
      houses in sequence along the main streets.

      In the old church records they refer to people belonging to households.
      For example, the Lorenc line I am researching is house #240
      do they still use that system today?
      If I went to Slovakia could I find that house 240?

      I have no Slovak blood but married a very americanized 1/4 slovak man and he
      knew nothing of his slovak history.
      I have searched for years and am now finding many things!
