2: In the 1890s, Ajdovscina was in the Land of Carniola within the Austria / Hungarian empire. The country we know as Slovenia was a part of the Austrian territories since the 15th Century until the creation of The Kingdom of Serbs, Croats, and Slovenes in 1918, and the Kingdom of Yugoslavia in 1929. Slovenia became a Province within the Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia in 1945, where it remained until it's independence was declared on 25 June, 1991. It is important to remember that, in tandem with the construction of the Austria - Hungary Empire, the Basic State Act of 1867 recognized the equality of all customary languages in school, office and public life. This allowed the citizens to identify themselves more closely with their language and culture, and allowed the Slovene language and culture to continue to thrive. Alojz came to America in 1913 and settled in Cleveland, Ohio. Cleveland still has the largest population of Slovenian expatriates in the world.
