Challenges in Slovenia Genealogy Research
Slovene records are organized on the local level, so identifying the town of origin is essential, before conducting any research in Slovenia. Slovak genealogical research is conducted primarily in church records, so identifying the religion of the family is also important. Church records include baptisms, marriages, and deaths, but also status animarium, which are household records of the parish’s residents arranged by people living at the same residence. Some parish registers have been digitized, but most records are held by the original parish churches or the ecclesiastical archives and must be accessed onsite. Civil registration was introduced from 1812-1814 during the French occupation, and then 1868-present. Some civil registers have been digitized, but most are kept in the provincial archives and civil registry offices and must also be accessed onsite.
