The surname Sanetrik has appeared in Slovakia.
Fayette Co and Westmoreland Co located near Pittsburgh were major

Especially Connellsville and Brownsville PA.
There was almost a direct pipeline of emigrants from Slovakia to this

region located in NE PA.

Czech-Bohemia (including Moravia 1849-1918) was a kingdom

Mähren was an Austrian Crownland located East of Böhmen
Mähren had been a separate crownland until 1849 when it became a
part of Böhmen (Bohemia) together with Austrian-Silesia.
The Austrian Habsburgs, accustomed to being imperial, assumed the
title of Emperor of Austria in 1804. Later, the "dual-monarchy" was
established, with the Habsburgs as Emperors of Austria and Kings of
Hungary, the combined realm being known as "Austria-Hungary".
Before WWI, Slovakia was part of Upper-Hungary (Felvidék) and
part of Austro-Hungarian Monarchy (1867-1918) and earlier the
Hungarian names were used for towns and counties.
In 1920, a newly-formed country of Czechoslovakia was created from the
Austrian Crownlands (Bohemia, Moravia and Austrian-Silesia) and a
portion of Upper-Hungary (Slovakia and Karpatho-Ukraine).
(Until this time there was no country called "Czechoslovakia")
