Gazetteer of Slovakia

This index lists geographic features, populated places, and administrative place names in Slovakia. It does not list all variant placenames of the past nor does it feature all variant spellings of a location.

Even with these shortcomings, it is a handy reference that will eventually hyperlink all names listed to a 1:250,000 map of Slovakia circa 1944 by the Defence Mapping Organization.

Until hyperlinks are added, the geographic location of each name is given in degrees, minutes, and seconds of latitude and longitude along with a reference to the segment of the 1944 map series the location points to.

When completed, it will also link to sites on the internet that can provide background history of the placenames that in some cases will also included photographs of the area and other related information including known surnames from the area and family histories.

We hope you will find it helpful in your ancestral quest in Slovakia.

All segments are installed in this test database, and a few place names. Select any hyperlink or Arnutovce, Koterbachy, Markusovce, Odorin, or Porac from the index to see a sample of things to come.
