RE: [slovak-34] Travelling to Slovakia - advice!

You're all welcome to come do research at the Library of Congress, but there are many local libraries that subscribe to Ancestry.com as well, and they're probably more convenient.  If your local library doesn't subscribe, ask the librarians which other nearby libraries do.

Kathleen, I agree with Bob. For my shorter trips (2 weeks or less) I usually get a car. Flights into Budapest are often cheaper then Vienna too. I also know that if you go to the library of congress in DC and get a library card then you would have free access to ancestors.com I have been told it is a great resource for finding your genealogy.

I you are used to have a car, and don't mind driving (it is a small country!), rent a car and have it on hand to get to many places, where trains and buses don't go. I always take direct flight to Vienna, rent a car right there at the airport (there are 4 agencies there), and in less then on hour I am in Bratislava, then continue on highway either north, or east, these highways are new and very nice. If you do, buy a highway sticker after you cross the border into Slovakia.
As for ancestry, do your homework now before you go, on computer, with Google, and Geni. Then when you'll there, Presov's city office should have the records, but it's important to have some names, date of birth, etc., to get started.

P.S. Bring a good fujara back home with you.

Hello,

My family and I will be travelling to Bratislava and Presov in August. We are VERY excited to visit Slovakia, especially because we are of Slovak heritage! Does anyone have any advice on how best to get to Presov from Bratislava? Train? 

Once my family and I are in Presov, we would like to do some research about our ancestry. Any suggestions about how to do this? Is there a heritage or geneological center in Slovakia that might have information? 

D'akujem!!!

-Kathleen Sabol
