In the Roman Catholic Bishopric Archives exist the complete evidence of parishes from Podkarpatsky Rus and Eastern Slovakia (parts of Zemplin and Ung )between years 1825 and 1945.

For example Vinne, Tibava, Sobrance, Rybnice, Senne n.Uhom, Palovce, Palin, Stretava, Jenkovce (copies of birth records).

I discovered also letters of Andrej Hlinka to the Bishops Council and other letters to Pacelli (Pius XII ) or to Edvard Benes.

I am sorry but I have only an item from my book and I have no financial possibilities to publish it again.

I have also the evidences of vilages of Szatmar district situated now in Hungary (for example Patyod, Cseke, Nyircsaholy, Papos, Pusztadobos, Csegold).

I made my family-tree which begins in 1721. If you have some information about this ancestors, it will help me to continue.

My ancestors:

Mayerheber Jan born ~1751 in Trebisov. His wife Drotar Maria born in 1745

Mucha Pal (or Pavel ) born ~!761 in Senne n.Uhom

Jakubcso Michal born`1772 in Snina.His wife Vajda Maria ~1774
