What town is this?

On the very first record listed, it shows Bela Kuklik's place of birth as a town in Csehorszag. I know that refers to Bohemia, but I can't make out what the name of the town is. Can anyone figure it out? Help!!! Thank you for the help!

Hi.
It is certainly old Slovak or Hungarian town. Try to ask in Slovak or Hungarian boards.

You tried Slovakia's, Czech Republic's board so why not Hungary's board being the record is in Hungarian. Someone on that board should be able to decipher the location. I'm not having any success in deciphering it.

The town could be Leskau (in German) which might be:
- Lískovec part of todays Brno - parish Brno - Staré Brno u Nanebevzetí Panny Marie http://actapublica.eu/matriky/brno/?pg=1
or
- village and parish Lestkov - http://actapublica.eu/matriky/plzen/?akce=hledat&hl_sign...
- or something else

The word in the registry is definitely the Magyar word for the Czech Lands.

I guess the spelling of the birth place is Leschan (Lešany) Csechország (correctly Csehorság, Bohemia). There are at least two Lešany in Bohemia. Unfortunately the parish books of them are not digitized yet. Name Béla is a Hungarian equivalent of Adalbert (in Czech Vojtěch). Look for Vojtěch Kuklík, a mason.

Thank you, K! After looking at the record again and again, I agree with you that it is Lesany, but I had no idea there was more than one! I found this website that has records online (it's VERY slow) but they are very difficult to read and now I'm not sure I even have the correct Lesany if there are several towns wit this name.

Maybe it is the Lesany that is closes to the present Slovakia's boarder. Just a thought.
