My ancestors were ethnic Germans living int he Austro-Hungarian Empire (AHE). How do I enter a birthplace for them when I am not sure of which member state they were born in?
My choices from the drop down menus are limited to Austria, AHE or Hungary AHE. What about other member states like Romania or Slovakia, for example? Right now I want to enter their birthplace as a generalized Austro-Hungarian Empire given my uncertainty.
Thank you for your help.
