Before WW I, Slovakia was part of Upper Hungary (Felvidék) and
part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire (1867-1918) and earlier a
part of Hungary under the Austrian Empire.
Hungarian names were used for towns and counties.
Bratislava (Sk) was called Pozsony in Hungarian.
Stupava (Sk) was called Stomfa in Hungarian and is located 10 miles
north of Bratislava.
Mast (Sk) was called Mászt in Hungarian and is located 1 mile
south of Stupava.
The letter 'sz' is pron. 's' in Magyar.
The János (John) Fatika who emigrated in 1905 went to his cousin
Juraj (George) Kralovic in Perth Amboy NJ.
János (H) Fatika's Last Residence had been Mászt, Hungary.
The current Slovakia telephone directory lists a S^tefan (Stephen)
Fatika under Stupava.
