36702Historical place names RE: [S-R] 1869 Census--birth place namespl
- Aug 31, 2013John,
I agree with you 100%.
At the time in history that a certain event happened, the place where it
happened, should be recorded in modern records using the place names that
were in use at that time. I follow this practice in my genealogy records.
I also record individual's names with the name that is written in the
historical records. If someone were to do similar research, I want them to
find what I found. I want our research to agree. That way, my research is
authenticated as being correct.

It seems to me that was the 1869 Hungarian census, as
Slovakia didn't exist as a country until 1993. I'm not
pro-Hungary or anti-Slovak, just think it's ridiculous not
to call the records, and place-names, what they were.
Otherwise it can be very confusing for new researchers
