Re: [S-R] RE: Lipnica Wielka; and the term Hungarian/Slovak
- Slovakia has only been called a place since 1849. There is a book called "A
History of Slovakia" by Stanislav J. Kirschbaum which is quite informative.
Slovak in 1902 woulld be considered an ethnic background, rather than a
nationality. At that time, it was still part of the Austro=Hungarian Empire,
as nearly as I can figure out, and on immigration records would probably (as
mine were) called Hungarian. Elizabeth
