Hi Looking for help finding my Grand Father Joseph Kolesar (Koleszar, Kolleszar) Baptismal records. He was born in 1885 ( /- 1yr) in a village called Stroc'in in the Šariš region. Since I do not know his faith (I thing Roman, Catholic) I do not know what Parish records to search.
What also complicates this issue is he married a Anna Marko (a Rusyn) Date Un-known who possibly was Russian Orth.
Does any one have a idea or what churches of a specific faith would be available in that area for my to start searching?
My grandfather came from a large family involving (2) marriages, possily 10 sibblings.
