the birthplace of a relative in 1888, as far as I can read the writing, as
being 'Shalitz in Ungarn'........ but what might the place be called today?

Robert I suggest *Skalitz* now in Slovakia and renamed Skalica:

I have a 1913 Baedeker [Osterreich-Ungarn] and it is listed as "Skalitz in
Ungarn". There are also two other "Skalitz" in Bohemia and Moravia, hence the
exact designation - see http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Skalitz
