Regarding the last ethnological, cultural anthropological, literary, sociological and psychological theories, one property of modern life stories is that they reflect the identities of a given personality. In this study, I would like to aim at showing what they can tell us about the ethnic, local or regional identities of an individual, a family or a given group - with the help of an interdisciplinary analysis method. This method is based on the combination of three theories: the theoretical background ethnography adopting narratology for text analysis, hermeneutic phenomenology coming from sociology and discourse analysis. I would like to illustrate some examples offered by the results of my research about the inhabitants of Galanta, Gabčíkovo and Komárno, which have mixed-ethnic population. The research concentrates on the frame of Slovak-Hungarian relations.
