JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Hitting walls in Slovakia #general

Hello - I had such great luck asking this group a question about Poland, that
I thought I would try again for Slovakia. The village in Poland I asked about -
Solinka - was directly across the border >from Slovakia, near the town of Vysna
Jablonka. I know there were multiple marriages between the PACHTER family in
Solinka (my immediate ancestors), and the ROTH family in Vysna Jablonka and the
Humenne area. I am working with a member of the Roth family _ DNA shows pretty
conclusively that we are related, but we haven't been able to pin down exactly
how.

I am not sure where to look for advice, or records. I think the area was
considered to be in the Hungarian part of Austria-Hungary until WWI, then
Czechoslovakia between the wars. I see there are SIGs for Hungary, Austria-
Czech Republic, and Sub-Carpathia but I'm not sure if any of them cover this
area.

Any advice or suggestions would be very welcome!

Thank you,

Vicki Schulkin
