I found this interesting. These are population extracts from a census in the 1920's in Pennsylvania (USA). Look at the names, Ljubica, Kiro, Vesela, Blaga, Ordan, etc. Macedonians knew they were Macedonian before Tito's Yugoslavia. Just goes to show Macedonians are older than Serbs, Greeks and Bulgarians like to think ;D

Macedonians are heroic Slovenian people.
Despite centuries of Turkish domination have not stopped with the constant uprisings and rebellion.
It cost them dearly horrific Turkish reprisals. The suffering people is finally seen to Orthodox brothers completely torn and almost destroyed.
Them on the cheek and Makednoncimma all the best.

(Makedonci su junački slovenski narod.
I pored viševjekovne turske dominacije nijesu prestajali sa stalnim ustancima i pobunama.
To ih je skupo koštalo stravičnim turskim odmazdama. Taj napaćeni narod je na kraju doživio da ga pravoslavna braća potpuno rastrgnu i gotovo unište.
Njima na obraz a Makednoncimma sve najbolje.)
