Re: Halic, Slovakia (Ga'cs, HU) #hungary

It is not hyphenated, only a mis-typed Hungarian spelling. In Hungarian thetoggle quoted messageShow quoted text
first 2 letters of the alphabet are "a" "á", meaning a longer sounding "a".
It is most definitely not an abbreviation.
Gács became Halic in 1918, when Northern Hungary became part of
Czechoslovakia, according to the Trianon Peace Treaty. It is the Slovak name
for Gács, now the "official" name. Mapquest shows Halic in today's Slovakia.
