    Is surname ‘OMASITS’ croation?
    In southern Burganland Austria I find many names ending in ‘ITS’ and wonder if these are Croation names?

    I recently learned that the above surname might be Croatian, and from the Radinci Mali village which I’m informed is located east of Ruma. Anyone have any information on this?

    Thank you

    My family was from Sotin, Croatia, from 1865 until the majority of them migrated out in the early 1900’s. A lot did still stay though. Their names were Szivak and Deszpoth (or Despot as I have seen it spelled in some books). Originally from Bacs-Bodrog, Hungary. My 3rd great grandparents, Istvan (Stephanus) and Anna (Szivak) Deszpoth (Despot), stayed back along with some of her brothers and sisters. There were cousins with last names Odry there as well. I don’t see them here.

    My grandparents’ last names were Osaben (Osben) and Sercar. The town of Cabar has been discussed as a possibility of where they lived. Are these Croatian surnames?

    Very surprised not to find last name Ostroški on your list. They’ve been in Varazdin area from the 16th century, and still live there and other parts of Croatia (verified in online church records!).
