Michael, a World War I draft registration card from June 1917 shows DAN POPA of Canton, Ohio, as having been born on 4 April 1894 in the town of FOGARASCH. The town called in German FOGARASCH, in Hungarian FOGARAS, and today in Romanian FAGARAS is located in the region known as TRANSYLVANIA. Transylvania was part of HUNGARY until 1918. Following World War I and the break-up of the vast Austro-Hungarian Empire, Hungary had to cede Transylvania to ROMANIA, and Transylvania remains part of Romania today. (Most people are familiar with Transylvania as the home of Dracula.)
