Obtaining Slovak Records #hungary
Bob's advice is not quite correct. I have obtained a number of records >from the Slovak archives and have never submitted payment with my application or sent copies of my passport or driver's license. The instructions provided at the Slovak Embassy website is consistent with my experience.
You can submit an application requesting a specific individual vital record (birth, marriage, or death) or request a "running account". Both application forms can be downloaded >from the Slovak Embassy website at http://www.slovakembassy-us.org/application%20for.html. =20
The info at the Embassy website directs researchers to submit applications to the State Archives in Bratislava at the addresses listed in completion of research you will receive a notice directly >from an archive to collect the payment, and upon receipt of the payment the=20
report will be sent by the archive directly to you.
In most cases I have received a response within 3 or 4 months indicating that no records are available or that a record has been=20
found and will be sent when payment is received. The Embassy will not accept personal checks--only money orders or cashier's checks. Documents are sent out within days after you submit payment. Be advised that all communications are in Slovak.
