    Wife Mary Sorokacz (I already found all her birth records)

    Born 1883
    Emigrated 12-12-1901

    Not sure about 1800s.  Today Liestany population is about 267 persons, Slovak ethnicity (NOT Hungarian).  Local church is Roman Catholic, located in Rudno.

    Info from CD:  Hungarian Village Finder, Atlas, and Gazetteer for the Kingdom of Hungary.

    Also, do you think this was a Carpatho Rusyn town?  Is there a breakdown of the ethnicity of the town in around 1880?

    The town was called LOMNICZA from 1808 to 1863.  Has had several other names through the past 200 years.  It is LOMNICA today, joined with another city LIESTANY.  All in Slovakia.

    I've tried for years to find the village Lomnicza in Zemplen Country (now Slovakia).  My grandfather, John Kasarda, listed this town on his marriage certificate in 1902.  I know he was Rusyn and Greek Catholic.  This town does not appear on the Rusyn Settlement Map by the Carpatho Rusyn Research Center.  Can any one help me find this town?  Many thanks!
