Does anyone have reference to a town called "Krasno" in what was Slovakia circa 1890. I can't seem to find it on current maps. We think George Kasuba came to America as a young boy with his older? brother John to work the coal mines in West Virginia. Alone or with parents, we don't know. George and John ended up in Pennsylvania. George eventually settled in Saratoga Springs, New York. My paternal grandfather, George Kashuba (then Kasuba) and his wife, Anna Mahelik, are shown as being born in Krasno on the 1920 census. My guess is that he would have been born there around 1870-1880. I have only vague reference that his parents were also born there making him at least a second generation Krasno. I can only postulate, then, that his granparents, my great-great grandparents were part of Kashubian migration from the Land of Kasuba (Kaszuba) in north Poland.

Researching: Archive Information
I would like to have a information about the search possibilities in Slovakia. My experience is that even if a record exists in a local archive they do not have the right to send it but I have to turn to the Central Archive and wait months. I have three type of ancestors in Slovak relations. (1) Those living in the earlier Hungary before 1895 and I am looking for registers in Archives (lived in Bratislava, Pozsonyszentgyorgy rom.kat, Sered, Veca, Dubnik, Michalovce, jewish) (2) Those living in Hungary and the settlement is still in Hungary, but the registers relating the years before 1895 are in Slovakia (This is the once Torna county and Torna, where the records are placed for Szin, Bodvaszilas, Perkupa etc. jewish community) (3) Some data from this century. This kind of registers (after 1895) in Hungary are not in archives but at the council or self government of the given settlement. I do not really understand the Slovak practice in the archives.
