*Re: Lipto registers and Mormon records #hungary

Dear all,

This is indeed an interesting approach to the search I have been conducting
for 3 years *without any results*. However back in the 18th and 19th
centuries, Liptovsky Mikulas had one of the largest Jewish populations in
Slovakia, being a reputable center of Torah studies. As a matter of fact,
several of my ancestors were such researchers and scholars. Still, I will
try to investigate further to see if the registers for this county are
stored somewhere else or the LDS keeps them under a different town. I did
ordered the Christian films to check the assumption that maybe Jewish
registers were done by a non-Jewish notary - quite unlikely, still worth a
try.

Thanks to all and let me take the opportunity to invite all those who are
investigating Lipto megye (county) to join me in this search.

regards to all
Tom

receiving my own mails sent to H-sig.
