      Hallo Vilo,

      I think you have some typos in your e-mail.

      1. The first Slovak Republic was founded in 1939 and not 1929.

      2. The expulsion of Germans form Czechoslovakia was after the WWII in 1945. You can read about it http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Expulsion_of_Germans_after_World_War_II#Czechoslovakia

      And

      http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flight_and_expulsion_of_Germans_from_Czechoslovakia_during_and_after_World_War_II

      I am not sure about the „Point of view“ of this articles, the point of view form German writers is definitively diffrent than of Czech writers.

      There were expulsed also Germans from Slovakia, mostly is talking only about germans frome Sudetenland. It is easy to understand why – in Sudetenland there were about 3.000.000 Germans, in whole Slovakia about 150.000.

      Cynthia,

      "not trying to be a hater but probably her parents were thrown back to
      Germany after WWII. This is common knowledge the Slovaks in disgust of
      the holocaust (real or not) evicted the German colonists out of the
      country."

      In 1929, the first Slovak Republic was founded. The first Prime Minister was Monsignor Jozef Tiso:
      http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Slovak_Republic_%281939%E2%80%931945%29

      I have never heard of German colonists arriving in Slovakia nor of evictions of "German colonists" during WWII. There were historic towns colonized by Germans, Hungarian and Rusin Towns.

      From where did you get information on this??

      I do know that Czechoslovakia evicted Germans from Sudetenland but this was long before WWII.

      I do know many people who made errors in immigration records because Records in Ellis Island listed the immigrants arriving before the fall of the Austria Hungary monarchy, were listed as German, (Austrian), or Hungarian. Our Slovak ancestors were often , (at least), bi-lingual, (Slovak, Hungarian or German), and very often tri-lingual, (All three).

      In your message following this, are you referring to the Reformation and Counter-Reformation??

      I do not know if you have contacted people there but here is the site for the Lutheran University in Bratislava:

      http://wmltblog.org/2012/11/slovakia-the-evangelical-lutheran-church-of-the-augsburg-confession-2/

      Z Bohom,

      Vilo

      Hi,

      not trying to be a hater but probably her parents were thrown back to Germany after WWII. This is common knowledge the Slovaks in disgust of the holocaust (real or not) evicted the German colonist out of the country. Not sure when Nimitz brought to Texas to join other German farmers but very often I see Germans that claim ancestry in SR and CZ Rep. here in Texas. Germans colonist were always subject to suspicion. Since they were sent back to a particular village in Germany I would look there as well. Bingen, Germany.
