      Jack,

      The entire paragraph is a direct quote from "The Statesman's Yearbook",
      Statistical and Historical Annual of the States of the World for the Year
      1975-1976, Edited by John Paxton, St. Martin's Press, New York, C 1975 The
      Macmillan Press Ltd., p.851. The quote is from the History of
      Czechoslovakia (Ceskoslovenska' Socialisticka' Republika). I would
      recommend researching the treaty mentioned: The Treaty of St.
      Germain-en-Layne (1919).

      Frank,

      Your use of "the autonomous province of Subcarpathian Ruthenia". This really
      interests me. I'd like to know more.

      I was never aware that Ruthenia ever existed as a defined political area or
      subdivision before. I always thought that Ruthenia (and all of the related
      names) was an ethnic area.

      Do you, or anyone else, know when this was, what empire was it a province
      of, and what territory did it encompass.

      Nancy,

      It was as a result of the Treaty of St. Germain-en-Laye in 1919, that
      recognized the Czechoslovak Republic, consisting of the Czech Lands
      (Bohemia, Moravia, part of Silesia) and Slovakia. To these lands were added
      as a trust, the autonomous province of Subcarpathian Ruthenia. This
      territory was broken up for the benefit of Germany, Poland and Hungary by
      the Munich Agreement (September 29, 1938) between UK, France, Germany and
      Italy.

      Frank,

      In your entry for 1867-1918, while all of present-day Slovakia was in
      the Austro-Hungarian Empire, part of it was in the Republic of
      Austria and part was in the Kingdom of Hungary. You may want to
      include both parts to be more accurate.

      Also, where you mention the addition of Ruthenia in 1919-1920, what
      are you considering Ruthenia? Is it Sub-Carpathia (or Trans-
      Carpathia) or part of Ukraine?
