If you are wondering why the year 1869 is so prominent in the Slovak part of my ancestry, it is due to the 1869 Hungarian census. The Kingdom of Hungary included that which we today call the Slovak Republic and the villages from which my Slovak ancestors came. This census has been filmed by the LDS Family History Library and is available there and its satellite research centers. It took three trips to Salt Lake City, but I located all my ancestors in that census, so family members are either alive or not as of that date.
That goes along with the fact that the Archives in Bratislava had indexed birth and marriage indexes but not the death indexes for villages. So, I've never searched for death records for most of my Slovak ancestors. That's a project that is about to happen since the LDS people have been filming those church records in Slovakia slowly but surely. They decided to film east to west. Of course, my ancestors lived in the extreme west on the border of Moravia. Myjava is done and available and now I see so is Tura Luka and Sobotiste. Those will be ordered next. Vrbovce is the last one I'll need.
Also a note on names. Elizabeth in Slovak is Alžbeta. In German it is Elisabeth. In Latin it is Elisabeth as well. So I noted that when the name was in Latin, I translated it as Elisabeth and when in Slovak I kept it as Alžbeta. However, since all of this was done in four parts (for my four Slovak great-grandparents), I was never consistent when entering the name. They are the same name. Same thing for Paul/Pavel or Jan/John/Joannes, etc.
