    Hi,Your website is awesome! it’s helped me immensely in doing my daughter-in-law’s genealogy from Croatia.

    In researching Church Records in Radoboj, Krapinia, Croatia, I’ve come across the surname of Kantolick. I don’t see it listed on your website. I did a google search on it, and nothing comes up. It appears on the microfilm many times. Her line is Georgius Kantolick, and I’ve extracted his entire family from the milcrofilm. It states he is from Velika Ves, which is near Radoboj.
    The records is on

    Looking for information on KRVARIĆ and KRIĆANSKI family.
    They are my Father’s and Mother’s family from Dugo Selo (Hrebinac) and Zagreb.
    I have living family there, but am not sure how or where to look for records or grand parents, great grand parents, and more.

    I am looking for my GG grand mother’s home town somewhere in Yugoslavia. Julia(Kvitk)Gall b.1884 d.1953 in Canada. Don’t know where her husband was from. Her maiden name Kvitk does not come up on searches. This is what is spelled on her tombstone in Canada. Do you know a region in the former Yugoslavia that this surname comes from?

    Of Croatia my family is from. I’m pretty sure outside of Zagreb, but I could be mistaken.

    I’m trying to find a reasonable spelling for my maternal grandmother’s maiden name. My parents’ generation (they are all gone now) had pronounced it as “Konzurak”, and the death certificate index shows “Konsurak” but it also misspelled her married name. Another reference on FamilySearch indicates it was “Kenyareck” which is probably a phonetic spelling where the “ny” is really “n” with a ha-chek. Have you ever come across any name that was in any way similar? Thanks.

    Please add KORUNIĆ / KORUNICH – We are from Smokvica, Korcula on the Dalmatian coast. From what we know, we came there 700-900 years ago from northern Croatia. Before that we apparently came from somewhere near the Ukraine, crossing the Caspian Sea.

    Nikola Parkhomchuk / 11-5-2018 / ·

    I think Parkhomchuk should be added to list of croatian last names because on my dna ethnicity test it showed I’m 95 percent Bosnian Croatian Serbian and my last name is Parkhomchuk is Parkhomchuk a Bosnian Croatian Serbian last name also because that is showing up on my dna test that Parkhomchuk had origins in Bosnia Croatia Serbia and I’m Zero percent from Russia Belarus and Ukraine and I’m not Jewish 🙂
