Western Slovak Republic

Zapadoslovenskej Kraj (West Slovakia Region)

Any person interested in inspecting archival documents is required to prove his/her identity by showing an identity card or other document of similar validity (e.g. passport); to register each visit in the visitor’s book, and at the beginning of research fill out a research form (badatelsky list). The research form is to be recompleted whenever the subject of inspection or the subject of research are changed, and at the beginning of every calendar year.

There may be a limit of five (5) books that may be researched on any one day. These books often must be reserved at least a day in advance at the archive. Most of the archives do have photocopy machines, but there are restrictions on what books you may copy from, due to the fragile state of the old matriky (church registers).

The listings for the Slovak Republic were updated August 2010.

State Archives (formerly Regional Archives)

There are two state archives (Statny archivy) located in Western Slovakia. The state archive contains the matriky (church records), which include baptismal, marriage and death. It also contains tax records, deeds, charters and nobility records.
