Family History Library

Updates for Slovakia

June 2003 - May 2004

Main Census Page  | FHL Holdings Page | FHL Catalog

The Family History Library added (or modified) records during the period of June 1, 2003 to June 1, 2004.  The data contained herein was derived from a June 1st report.  While the cataloging is complete, the FHL card catalog is in process.  The FHL Cataloguer has informed me that the films are available for ordering now.  However, the web card catalog has not yet been updated by the FHL technicians.  If you need a film number in the interim, drop me a note.  However, many local Family History Centers are hesitant or refuse to order films they cannot find in the catalog.  Patience is the keyword!
