There are at least 3 very good films at the FHC >from Kosice and there are
quite a few researchers too. Use the JGFF to find the fellow researchers.
The web site www.kosice.sk is the home page for the town and has links
to many wonderful pictures. Under the history link is a good deal of
information about the town, you can pull up maps, photos of old buildings,
an aerial photo, cemetary lists for the Jewish and public cemetaries
[I found relatives in both], a list of memorialized WWI soldiers from
Kosice and so on.

The films I used are FHC # 1920775, # 1920776, and #1920777.
Good luck!
