How would I find baptism and death records for the Habina and Karkoska families who lived in Lipnica Wielka from about 1850 through 1900. The village at the time was called Alsolipnica and was in the kingdom of Hungary; I believe the county was originally Arva, but in Poland was renamed Orowa or Orova.

Andrew Habina (birth date unknown) was a carpenter, and fell to his death while working on a church roof working on a cross. His son Ignacz, also a carpenter, claims his birth year as 1879. Family hearsay is that Ignacz left home at 14 to work in other countries to broaden his skill. He was the 5th child of 11 born to the family.

Ignacz was my grandfather, and he changed his name to James Harbin sometime after he came to the U.S., but both names Habina and Harbin (and both first names) appear on various records in the U.S.

Ignacz met and married Ludwina/Lena? Karkoska in Philadelphia. She had also been born in "Alsolipnica, Hungary", but the two young people never met until both had immigrated to the US around 1900. They married at St. Stanislaus Church in Philadelphia in 1902, and later belonged to St. John Nepomucene church which had mostly Slovak members.

If you have any information about either family (Habina or Karkoska) from that time period, please let me know!
Also, I believe the family may have been Roman Catholic, and in America I know they read a newspaper published in the Slovak language, and assume (right or wrong) it was printed in the U.S.

There was romancatholic parish nin Lipnica Wielka. Church records are available on familysearch, here:
