      I am looking for a map of Slovakia that shows the break down of the counties. I have 3 different maps and non of them show the counties. I have an excellent road map from EuroTravel that I use, but it doesn't have the break down of counties either. I am looking for the county which Rimavska Sobota is located in which is about 110-120 miles east of Bratislava. My husband's ancestor's came from a small town a few miles from there. My husband has a great uncle still living who was born there, but even he can't tell me the county name.

      Any help would be appreciated.
      Thanks

        This letter is sent in order to inform you that we have Austria-
        Hungary and other maps showing villages in Central and Eastern
        Europe, including the area of Pod-Karpatska Rus that the ancestors
        of many of us once inhabited. Copies are available to the public
        either free of charge or at a nominal cost. This should be of special
        interest to your readers who are doing genealogical research.
        Those interested are urged to write or e-mail including the
        names of the villages from which their ancestors emigrated. Any
        accompanying information, such as what country the village
        presently lies in, would also be helpful. We will then do our best
        to provide copies of maps to them.

          Dear Marlene,

          I can probably track down a web page that shows the former counties of Hungary. Slovakia was Upper Hungary and contained several of them. It's a little tricky, figuring out where all the modern places are. What I do not have, and wish I did, is a modern map that shows the old boundary lines for each zupa (county). These counties were political subdivisions of the Kingdom of Hungary, I guess, but they were not used when the nation of Czechoslovakia was formed, or since the break-up. One clue is the presence of the old county name in modern place names, like Liptovsky Mikulas, meaning the town of St. Nicholas in old Liptov County.

            Are the Library of Congress maps still coming? I thought they had run out.
            Nonetheless, I did receive some, and they are great -- but none shows the
            old county lines. There are some web pages that show the old counties of
            Hungary altogether, and another one that shows details of each county, for
            example broken down into subdivisions, with many small towns and villages.
            You need to remember that the place names will all be in Hungarian too,
            though.
