      My great Grandmother’s name was Annie Jestina Brulia. We have a lot of family history from the name Brulia which had many different spellings.

        Hi Jessica,

        My grandfather is Antonius Brulja, born in Hreljin Ogulinski on June of 1874 and baptized at the Holy Cross church in Ogulin. Do you have any dates/names of family from that area or that time?
