Macedonia – New York Times about the Bulgarians of Macedonia (1900 – 1910)

A reader of HoM kindly shared with us that some confused souls from FYROM are on great pains. They are struggling to discover “proofs” of  Macedonians allegedly not being Greeks in New York Times archives of the early 20th century.

As a humanitarian gesture to FYROM’s Slavs who are so frustrated to discover their real roots, we thought to assist them in their lonely trip to knowledge.

Ironically they view themselves as Bulgarians . Even the head of the so-called ‘Macedonian Revolutionary Committee is clear about the reason of their organization’s existence.
