    Here is a link to the Greek Catholic records of Sacurov which includes Lomnica.

    If you know the parents of John Kaszarda born in 1873, you will be able to scroll through the 1869 census of Lomnicza (link attached) and find additional information.  The church records of Sacurov are woefully incomplete.

    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.
