Following in the footsteps of our forefathers / Po stopách vlastných predkov
The land between the Danube River and the high Tatra mountains, today called Slovakia, has over the many hundreds of years been home to different ethnically, culturally and religious groups. They were our ancestors, many of them even our distant relatives. We, being their descendants often ask the question "Who were those people or where do I begin to look for them"?

The mission of this site is to help you with this quest, a quest which may take years or a life time. In either case, if your ancestors come from what today is Slovakia, the following areas of interest will help you in both setting your expectations and where to further concentrate your efforts:
