          Entry: "Slovakia declared its independence as the Republic of Slovakia on
          March 14, 1939, and on March 16 Hitler undertook to 'protect' Slovakia, and
          on March 18, 1939, a Treaty was signed in Vienna by Hitler and von
          Ribbentrop for Germany and by Dr. Tiso and Dr. Durkansky for Slovakia, with
          the following provisions:

          "1. Germany guarantees to protect the boundaries of Slovakia
          for a period of 25 years. To afford this protection the German Armed Forces
          are entitled at any time to construct military works in a zone running
          westwards from the Slovak frontier and eastwards on a general line running
          along the eastern slope of the Small Carpathians, the eastern slopes of the
          White Carpathians, and the eastern slopes of the Javornik Mountains. These
          military works may be manned by the military forces of the German troops.

          "2. Slovakia is an independent sovereign State, with its own
          army, its own currency, and its own diplomatic representatives abroad.

          "3. Slovakia is to receive, as the basis of its currency, 15 to
          25 percent, of the gold and foreign exchange holdings of the Czecho-Slovak
          National Bank.

          "4. Slovakia will also receive a goodly portion of Czech war
          material at present located within its borders.

          "5. Slovakia is at liberty to join the German Customs Union."

            Entry: Page 658: "On March 16 [1939], Hitler announced that Czechia [sic.]
            thereafter belonged to the territory of the German Reich and would be known
            as the "Protectorate of Bohemia and Moravia." Tiso invited Hitler to become
            the protector of Slovakia, also, which became a vassal state of the Reich,
            possessed of little more independence than Bohemia-Moravia. One result of
            Germany's military occupation of both Czechia [sic.] and Slovakia was
            crystal-clear-she was now in a stronger position than ever to continue her
            'Drang nach Osten' (Force towards the East). For she now had new passes
            from which she could strike either northward against Poland or southward
            against Hungary."

                ancestors and they use modern day names for the location of origin. Some of
                the names did not come into existence until years after the ancestors
                departed the country of origin and moved on to other countries. The
                following list is the result of my research and I welcome any corrections or
                additions.

                The information is provided in the order of Effective Date, Country Name,
                Included territories. Your attention to called to the terms Czecho-Slovakia
                and Czechoslovakia. The use of the hyphen or absence of the hyphen changed
                from time to time.

                I would appreciate your assistance in providing corrections or additions.
                Please provide a source or reference for your information.

                    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?

                      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.

                        After rechecking my 1815-1866 map of Central Europe, the Empire of Austria
                        included Bohemia, Moravia, part of Silesia and a small portion of Galicia
                        but NO part of Slovakia. Slovakia north to the Carpathian Mountains was all
                        part of Kingdom of Hungary. The area north of the Carpathian Mountains up
                        to the Vistula River was all called Galicia, all of which was in Kingdom of
                        Hungary.

                        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?

                          After rechecking my 1815-1866 map of Central Europe, the Empire of Austria
                          included Bohemia, Moravia, part of Silesia and a small portion of Galicia
                          but NO part of Slovakia. Slovakia north to the Carpathian Mountains was all
                          part of Kingdom of Hungary. The area north of the Carpathian Mountains up
                          to the Vistula River was all called Galicia, all of which was in Kingdom of

                          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?

                          Nancy

                                This is getting quite messy.

                                The Kingdom of Hungary _was_ part of the "Empire of Austria" in
                                1815-1866 just like the Kingdom of Bohemia, Margraviate of Moravia,
                                etc. The Kingdom of Hungary _never_ extended north of even merely the
                                main ridge of the Carpathians except two tiny spots in Spis and Orava
                                Counties (which were still in the Carpathians). The Kingdom of
                                Hungary _never_ included any part of Galicia. The Habsburg Austrian
                                monarchy included more than merely the areas listed above.

                                Austria was _not_ a republic during that time. _All_ of Slovakia was
                                in the Kingdom of Hungary, _no_ part of modern Slovakia was in any
                                other Habsburg land.

                                I'd add, Vladimir, that it's more often the people than the sources.

                                  This is getting quite messy.

                                  The Kingdom of Hungary _was_ part of the "Empire of Austria" in
                                  1815-1866 just like the Kingdom of Bohemia, Margraviate of Moravia,
                                  etc. The Kingdom of Hungary _never_ extended north of even merely the
                                  main ridge of the Carpathians except two tiny spots in Spis and Orava
                                  Counties (which were still in the Carpathians). The Kingdom of
                                  Hungary _never_ included any part of Galicia. The Habsburg Austrian
                                  monarchy included more than merely the areas listed above.

                                  Austria was _not_ a republic during that time. _All_ of Slovakia was
                                  in the Kingdom of Hungary, _no_ part of modern Slovakia was in any
                                  other Habsburg land.

                                  > people take it for granted

                                  I'd add, Vladimir, that it's more often the people than the sources.

                                    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.

                                    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.

                                    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?

                                    Nancy

                                      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.

                                      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.

                                      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?

                                      Nancy

                                        After rechecking my 1815-1866 map of Central Europe, the Empire of Austria
                                        included Bohemia, Moravia, part of Silesia and a small portion of Galicia
                                        but NO part of Slovakia. Slovakia north to the Carpathian Mountains was all
                                        part of Kingdom of Hungary. The area north of the Carpathian Mountains up
                                        to the Vistula River was all called Galicia, all of which was in Kingdom of
                                        Hungary.

                                        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?

                                        Nancy

                                          Jack,

                                          recommend researching the treaty mentioned: The Treaty of St.

                                          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.

                                          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.

                                          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?

                                            From the first link above:

                                            "In documents generated at the Paris Peace Conference in 1919 the
                                            formulation, "territory inhabited by Ruthenians south of the
                                            Carpathians," was used; in documents from this period produced by
                                            Rusyn-American immigrants the terms Subcarpathian Rus' and Rusinia
                                            appeared. It was Czechoslovakia's constitution (1920) which for the
                                            first time used as an official name Subcarpathian Rus' (Czech:
                                            Podkarpatska Rus), although in some Czech publications the term
                                            Rusinsko was employed. Subcarpathian Rus' referred, however, only to
                                            the new country's administrative unit, basically east of the Uzh
                                            river (eastern Uzh, Bereg, Ugocha, and Maramarosh counties). Other
                                            Rusyn-inhabited lands south of the Carpathians that fell under a
                                            Slovak provincial administration (in western Uzh, Zemplyn, Sharysh,
                                            and *Spish counties) gradually came to be known as the Preshovs'ka,
                                            Priashovs'ka Rus', or the *Presov Region. Ukrainian emigres who
                                            settled in Subcarpathian Rus' after 1919 used a wide range of names,
                                            including Pidkarpats'ka Rus' (Subcarpathian Rus'), Prykarpats'ka
                                            Ukraina (Ukraine near the Carpathians), Zakarpats'ka Ukraina
                                            (Ukraine beyond the Carpathians), Karpats'ka Ukraina (Carpatho-
                                            Ukraine), and even the vague term Sribna Zemlia (The Silver Land).
                                            After Czechoslovakia introduced a new territorial-administrative
                                            reform (July 1927) the republic was divided into four lands, the
                                            farthest east of which received the formal designation, Zeme
                                            podkarpatoruska (The Subcarpathian Land).

                                            When, on October 11, 1938, the province was given its own autonomous
                                            government, Subcarpathian Rus' became again the official name as
                                            entered into Czechoslovak constitutional law (November 22, 1938)."

                                              well respected and known for their historical accuracy.



                                              In "The Statesman's YearBook" Edited by Brian Hunter, the 132nd Edition
                                              dated 1995-96, printed by St. Martin's Press, New York, it states on page
                                              156, under the article for Austria (Republik Oesterreich) and I quote
                                              directly: "History: Following the break-up of the Austro-Hungarian Empire,
                                              the Republic of Austria was proclaimed on 12 Nov. 1918." It then goes on to
                                              say that "On 12 March 1938 Austria was forcibly absorbed into Nazi Germany."



                                              If you are not familiar with "The Statesman's Yearbook" it is an annual
                                              publication, first published in 1864 and is used extensively as a primary
                                              reference source for diplomats around the world. The 2007 edition is the
                                              142nd year the reference has been published. From their website at:

                                              About The Statesman's Yearbook
                                              Dr Barry Turner, only the seventh editor in the 142-year history of The
                                              Statesman's Yearbook


                                              The Statesman's Yearbook was conceived of by Robert Carlyle and brought into
                                              being with the help of William Gladstone. Their vision for the book was an
                                              authoritative and accessible volume containing information essential for
                                              diplomats, politicians and all statesmen involved with international
                                              affairs. It quickly gained recognition as an indispensable reference tool
                                              and has been published continuously since 1864, through two world wars,
                                              without missing an edition. It was ranked by Library Journal as one of the
                                              top 20 best reference resources of the millennium.

                                              Today, international affairs concern almost every one of us and the scope of
                                              the book has become correspondingly broader, with expanded coverage of
                                              history, politics, economics, trade and infrastructure for each country, all
                                              thoroughly researched and verified by a dedicated editorial team. It also
                                              provides extensive further reading lists and web links for further research.

                                              In a world where opinion, propaganda and inaccuracy are frequently put
                                              forward as fact, The Statesman's Yearbook remains the first point of
                                              reference for anyone needing reliable, concise information on any country in
                                              the world.

                                              ... I did n-o-t quote you about that, Frank. You did not place the Republic of Austria in the 19th century. Another post did and I quoted that post about it,

                                                I did n-o-t quote you about that, Frank. You did not place the
                                                Republic of Austria in the 19th century. Another post did and I
                                                quoted that post about it, not yours.

                                                > the geographical area known as Galicia was a territory
                                                > within the political entity known as the Kingdom of Hungary.

                                                It never was.
