  1. The Australian additions will be a most valuable resource to us. My thanks go to the creators of the records and to FamilySearch for making them available.

  2. Hi, I don’t know if this is the proper way of doing this. I was wondering if there has been any work searching for lost records in the what used to be Slovakian Countries. Every time i try to search I can only find my Great Grandmother on my fathers side. Any help would be greatly appreciate. Thanks Terry Bosak
