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.

My grandfather, Michael Kuzel was born in Sonobor, Yugoslovia and as I mentioned in the last post, Agnes Kuzel was born in Kostanjevac, Yugoslavia. does anyone know anything about those locations?

I just found a great deal of specific information on my grandparents from my grandmother's naturalization papers. she was born in Kostanjevac, Yugoslavia on Jan. 20, 1887 and he was born in

The Kuzels are Croatian and of the 12 children born to Agnes and Michael, 3 are left and only 1 is able to recall facts and dates, etc.
Recently, I found that there is a large Croatian population in San Pedro, CA, about an hour and a half from where I live. There is even a Croatian Cultural Center that I am going to check out.
This genealogy has become an addiction for me-I love it

I found this site today and hope that it can help me in my research. I am looking for info.on a Croatian family. The surname is Kuzel. According to the census records I have located, between 1920 and 1930, the name changed. In 1920, Michael and Agnes Kusie lived in Unity, PA with children with the same names and birthdates as my aunts and uncles. They moved to Ohio (Trumbull County) and the surname was Kuzel. According to the census records, they were born in "Yugoslovakia" and are Croat

Alison - depending in the time period, it is very likely your Slovak records are in either Hungarian, Latin, or a combination of the two. The FHL website has a good genealogical Hungarian dictionary
