I'm not sure that this will make you feel any better, but as I
understand it, the Mormons only deal with the State Archives in
Slovakia. Therefore, if the record books that interest you were not
filmed by the Mormons, that means that they were not in the State
Archives. They could be in a regional archive, or in the town itself and
never transferred.
