Last updated 24 April 1999

This page is NOT LINKED to the general public and is available here only to aide in the research of the Macala and Porac Family History. Some of the information may be wrong.

The Porac and Rudnany Video is now ready.

Stephan Hanuscin of Bardejov has put together a history of Porac, Slovakia. It is on line at the People of Porac Page.

Stephen has found the 1869 Hungarian Census for Porac and has made a digital copy of a page from the census so you can see what information it contains. It is very detailed and goes beyond what you find in the parish register of Saint Demetrius Church in Porac.

If your interested in what the Hungarian Census of 1869 looks like, check the page out.

If you have ancestors from the area, this is a must see history that Stephan has put together as he has a 1929 photo of grades 1-3 from the Rusyn School in Porac that has names for about half the children pictured. You will almost be guaranteed to find a cousin in the photograph.

The 1831 Census of Koterbach is now on line.

We will be putting a revised family of Michael Stanislav here shortly to check for errors before replacing the current version. Quite a few additions on this one.

The Family of Michal Stanislav A test of added information is now added. The file is not yet linked to the index but is available so everyone who made submissions has a chance to correct potential errors. If you made any changes, please review the test data base and let us know if everything is correct.
