I am doing some research in church records for Výrava (Medzilaborce District) in Slovakia. I am told the people I am looking for were Byzantine Catholic. I assumed this meant Greek Catholic. I am told that they are not the same. The only records I find for the area are the following: Orthodox, Greek Catholic, Roman Catholic, Evangelical, Evangelical Reformed, and Jewish. Can anyone tell me if Byzantine is the same as Greek Catholic for this area of the world? I don't find who I am looking for in the Greek Catholic records, so maybe they are right and I should be looking in different church records.
Thanks so much!
