    My mother’s maiden name, ŠINTIĆ, is not on the list. She is from Gornje Vas in Zumberak. There are several families there with the same last name that are not related to one another.

    I am wondering about my grandfather’s name with the North American spelling Slepcevich. In Canada, we pronounced ‘slepsevich’. My understanding is he grew up near Zagreb, possibly north east of. Rural, farm, owned or bred, and dressed ‘Arabian similar’ horses for parade or ceremony.

      My late cousin’s husband’s name was Pero Segedin. He was born about 1925 or 1926. He was originally from Orebic, Croatia on the Dalmatian coast. He passed away in the late 1990s in Dubrovnik. I don’t know if this is the same Segedin.

    Hello! I think your website is wonderful.
    My last name is Šušnjara, and it’s not on the list. My family is Croatian on my father’s side. The only thing I know about this last name is that my grandpa’s parents lived in a small village called Vrpolje. There is also a village close by named Šušnjara so it might come from there, but we’re not sure.
    We now live in France since my grand grandparents emigrated there, but some of the family stayed in Croatia, some also went to Canada and the United States.
    Hope this helps!
