About us

Your participation in the project will contribute to the discovery process of ethnicities rooted in the geographic regions in Europe, where Slovenian speaking people have lived in the past millennium.
You can choose a place of ancestral origin from official database of place names in Slovenia (type a place name and read the correct spelling bellow the map), then select prevailed statistical region (Info, Wiki)
See also a map of statistical regions in Slovenia, which can be used for determination of your origin. Some Slovenian ethnicity regions remained outside borders of Slovenia and can be viewed on a detailed map of regional groups of Slovenian dialects and grouped here https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Slovene_dialects (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Slovene_language).

Your Slovenian ancestry need to be documented or known at least to the time of Austria-Hungary Empire (before 1918).
