Kocurek or Koczurek likely in Slovakia

Posted In

Can anyone help me with what appears to be a puzzle with the old Slovak or Hungarian County names? I am using; Slovakia; Slovakia, Church and Synagogue Books, 1592-1910 and Slovakia, Census, 1869. The Slovakia Church and Synagogue Books list many more counties than what seem to have actually existed. In fact it appears that many of the places listed as Counties in The Church & Synagogue Books are actually only villages. The reason I am trying to make sense of this is to try and correlate records between the Church Books and The Census Records. I am also using the web site of Juraj Cisarik, which was featured in the June 2014 issue of the CGSI journal. Cisarik lists all of the current counties and the old names. These agree with the County names of the Census Records, but not the Church Books which as I stated before, seem to include many village names as Counties. I would appreciate some help in understanding this. You may e-mail me directly at: Thank you, Jim LaBossiere
