    Please add GRZAN
    My grandfather, Joe Grzan, emigrated to America around 1900 from the Slunj area. His brother, Tomo Grzan, came a decade or so later.
    Joe married my grandmother, Loretta Peffer, a woman of Pennsylvania German descent, in 1912. Hence GARTNER

    Please add the name GROHOVAC. The name Grohovac originated from the town of Grohovo, Croatia. This town is located near Rijeka, Croatia. The town Grohovo originated in the 12th century. (I’m still trying to find proof of this data). The name Grohovac means “the people of the count” Grof means in Croatian, “Count”. The Grohovac name had a few transitions. Grofofci was the beginning of the Grohovac name but it was a tongue twister for the Croatian people that it transitioned to Grohovci. Grohovci is plural for Grohovac. This information was passed on through the generations of our family. In Rijeka the Grohovac ancestors worked for the count that lived in the Trsat Castle which is in Rijeka, Croatia. (I’m also looking for proof of my family working at the castle)
    The town of Grohovo was destroyed by an earthquake which triggered a land slide. My families mill was pushed into the river and destroyed.
    The Grohovac name has also transitioned to Grohovaz. Other transitions may exist.
