My relatives who came in the early 20th century used Hungary as their
place of birth.

Yes. My grandmother, who lived in Stanislav, Austrian Galicia (now
Ivano-Frankivsk, Ukraine) until the First World War, always said she
was >from Austria.

Certainly. My grandparents were born in the 1890's in Buczacz, a town
that was in the eastern part of former Austro-Hungarian Empire's
eastern-most province of Galicia. Most of their relatives were from
Buczacz and nearby towns. Buczacz is now part of the Ukraine. My
grandparents lived in Buczacz until they moved to Vienna shortly after
WWI and then to New York City in 1921. They lived into the 1970's and
1980's respectively. Whenever they were asked where they were
orignally from, they would give a one word answer, "Austria". It was
not until relatively recently, after they died, that I learned that
they had come >from Buczacz in eastern Galicia and not >from what we
currently know as Austria proper... I suspect that in their minds,
there was no difference - it was all "Austria"...

Absolutely.

My late father, born in Turka nad Stryj, would always say that he was born
in Austria. [Date of birth, 1907].
