    I am curious about the origin of the name Stanfel – my husband thinks it may be a corruption of another Croatian name. Anyone know about the origins of it?

    I am doing research on Joseph Sakatsitz (How his name shows up on several forms in the US from 1901 into the 30s when he shortened to Saks. I did see an early spelling Sakasits as well. I know he came from Burgerland which in 1901 was Hungarian territory at the time. I see some alternative spellings like Szokatsis, Sczaczs too. Anyway, trying to figure out where the family came from. Looks like Josephs parents are Stephan and Anna probably from Ubersdorf Austria. I don’t think our name is German. With a bit of research it must be either Hungarian, maybe Polish, or maybe Croatian?

    My paternal side has the surname of Skradski. And are from Croatia. Just wondering if it is a Croatian name. I didn’t see it on the surname list. Also, if it’s not a Croatian name, might it be a form of another name? It was spelled with a y also.

    Looking for relatives of Kranjcevic family, originally from Lichko Lescko or Otatac, Croatia. My father was born in l903 and emigrated to Canada in l927. He had 3 sisters and one brother, Milan, who would now be in his late 80’s and possibly living in Krapina. Milan had one daughter that we know, her name being Tifania . An info would be appreciated
