Can someone please tell me: is "Holkova" the feminine form of "Holek" or "Holka"? Thank you!

Found this link recently, so I thought I would share.  It is a site to commemorate Czech and Slovakian veterans.  You can search by region & city.

Could you send a .jpg of the record?  Paní is Mrs. and Pan is Mr.

I checked several Slovak/English dictionary and the word "panik" does not appear.  "Panika" translates as fear or panic, which makes no sense.

I ran across something that I was not familiar with today--perhaps someone else is familiar with this and can help: While researching a male Slovak line, there appears to be two surnames for the male (PANIK and OMASTA).  This was listed both on his marriage record (in NY) and the birth record of a child (back in Slovakia), although it was crossed out in this record.  It does not appear that the second surname is that of his mother--in fact, she has the same surname as he does (PANIK).  On his baptismal record, it lists his father as "Panik Backorik Pavel" and his mother as "Panik Kristina."  Can anyone explain this? 

[It appears the father's last name may be "PANIK BACKORIK"?  Not all of the males are listed this way--only 2 on a page of about 40 records.  Also, it is not a surname of one of the godparents.]

Good news!  The 1869 Slovakia census is now on  As it states, "This census does not cover all of Slovakia, but only those census records in the regional archives of Bytča, Banská Bystrica, and Nitra," but this will still be helpful to many.  I found the Magyar translations available at invaluable.  Just wanted to share....

Hello,  I am helping my pastor find some information on his family.  This is all I have but I was hoping someone here might be able to help. 

Marie Katharine Totth (or Toth) was born June 15, 1887 in Kobolkuth, Hungary (spelling and accents may be wrong).  She was the daughter of Michael Totth  born in 1862 in Malaika, Czech Republic and Katherine Zeedek (or Czedek) born in 1874 in Malaika.  Any help would be appreciated.  Thanks,  Peter

I was on Rootsweb a few weeks ago, puzzling how my family was related to another family, and made an interesting discovery that I would like to share with the group. I discovered GOLD-- a gold mine of info. The church registers for many churchs in the Czech republic have been digitized and are on the internet. Of course, you have to subscribe to the site. But I have not had to pay to use it. The website is: . The one drawback is that you may have to know a little bit of Czech to use it effectively.

Thank you Marianne! The Hungarian dictionary was very helpful!
