      Vilo, that would have been Pavel Lorenc brother Ferdinand "Fred" Lorenc in
      so that makes his wife Pani then
      I have very little on him other than he died after 1966 and he was a twin to his
      and Pavel's brother Vincent

      Vincent had a daughter Mariska who married Latzka Carsky and had son Vradi

      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.

      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!
