Hungarian and Slovakian Record Searchers Update

        For those of us who have been diligently ordering our films and reading them when the library is open or patiently scrolling through the mostly unindexed records online for the past two years when Family Search started uploading the records digitally, you are in for a real surprise !

On June 15th , the LDS people did something nice! They indexed many records. Of course, as a volunteer indexer for these records, the spelling can vary so use wildcards in your queries. Also remember that not records have been indexed but it's a start.

If you go to the Continental Europe collections , scroll on down to the Slovakia, Churches and Synagogue Books, 1598 - 1910 link , it will give you two options :

You can go direct to your usual marked spot in  "View Images in this Collection" and browse through1,853,592 images ( at last report ) in this collection .In my case , I am in the middle of the early 18th century in Kobyly and always praying that I properly cited my last location to resume my searches .

Or you can search through these images in an indexed search fields .
