    I have info that my grandfather, Marko (Mike) Sopp (Sop), born Aug. 28, 1886, immigrated here from Gornji Kosinj, Lika-Senj, Croatia (Yugoslavia), but can’t find any info for him from outside the USA–no parents, siblings, etc., no birth records, etc. –Only that he immigrated to the USA in 1906, age 20, as Marko Sop. He changed his first name here, later, to Michael, and his name has been spelled Sopp, here, in the USA. Can anyone help?

    I do not see Sop (Sopp). My “brick wall” is my grandfather who has in his USA documents that he was born 27 Aug 1889, in Gornji Kosinj, but Robert Jerin (USA Croatia FB) said he was born in Rudinka, Doni Kosinj. I can’t find ANY information about him in Croatia (Yugoslavia, then). I would like more details about him and his family and ancestors. BTW Ales Kuretic is my 6th cousin once removed (on my Mother’s mother’s side–Slovenian). Marko was my mother’s father (Croatian).
