Bucovina: Hungarian Székely 1776-1941

Five villages (Andrásfalva, Hadikfalva, Istensegíts, Fogadjisten, and Józseffalva) were founded for Hungarian-speaking settlers after the Hapsburg Empire acquired Bucovina from the Ottoman Empire in 1774. Most of the settlers were Roman Catholic Székely from Transylvania who nearly all came from the eastern Székely counties of Csík and Háromszék.
