hello Joe, I was very surprised to discover your web site. It was very interesting. Our original villages are very close to each other, I would say less than 30 km. So maybe our roots are similar. In my genealogy, I can go back for sure until about 1750 in the village or Frivald (Rajecka Lesna). I have problems to read the records before, but I believe I could go further. Do you know your family line in Slovakia?
