      There are frequent occasions when folks talk about the origin of their
      ancestors and they use modern day names for the location of origin. Some of
      the names did not come into existence until years after the ancestors
      departed the country of origin and moved on to other countries. The
      following list is the result of my research and I welcome any corrections or
      additions.

        Good job Frank. Thanks.
        Most of our ancestors in the Czech-Slovak-Rusyn sphere never identified
        themselves as being in Austria. Hungary continued to rule the internal
        affairs our lands even during the dual monarchy. Even the troops were
        recruited by the Kingdom of Hungary, although Austria ostensibly handled all
        outward-facing matters such as one united army, diplomacy, etc.

          As I mentioned once before, I got maps from ebay from the years, 1912, 1939, 1945, 1958, and then present. None of them cost me more than $7.00. From those I can see my Great-grandmother's hometown change hands as the borders changed. It's quite facinating and very helpful in research.

          What the mind of man can conceive and believe, he can achieve.
