I noticed the other day that FamilySearch had added a new database of use to those with Hungarian and Slovakian ancestors. They added the Slovakia Church Books, 1592-1910 database on March 22nd. I've personally been making great use of these records. The father-in-law of a friend of mine came from this area, along with various noble cousins of mine. I know these records can seem daunting to the researcher unversed in Hungarian or Slovakian research. The fact that the borders and names of towns changed constantly can give you a headache, too. I decided that creating a guide to these records would not only help me, but would help other researchers as well. I'm going to create a separate guide (blog post) for each religion.

Quick links to the other guides: 

This guide is focused on the Reformed church records within this database. 

NOTE: I have found four (4) errors within this database. Four towns are listed in the Evangelical church records in the database, that are NOT Evangelical. They are Reformed church records. These towns can be found in the Evangelical guide. They are the following towns:

Čiližská Radvaň, Dunajská Streda District
Kľúčovec, Dunajská Streda District
Veľký Meder, Dunajská Streda District
Diakovce, Šaľa District
