    The last name Visosevic appears on several entries at Ancestry,
    .com My husband’s paternal great-grandmother was Anna Visosevic perhaps from Kalje. She was married to Petar Jelenic. There are others in the US immigration records with this same last name. I would like to know if this is in fact a discrete name or a variation of a different surname. Thank you for all of you genealogy work.

    I am on a very long journey to try and find my mother’s relatives. She was born Jun 1942 in Pula. At some point during WW2-she was sent to an orphanage (even thats difficult as she doesn’t remember where she was sent or what country )for a very long time until adopted in the US in 1951. I located her ship manifest and shows her last name as Varesco. As I understand, Pula was occupied by many my search has come up to very little as I am trying to understand the culture of Pula and how Italians lived there with their Italian names and migrations. I know that many people, when migrating to America or other countries changed their names slightly. With that..was her last name really Varesco? I want to find our relatives and know a side of our family missing. I have to say-this is quit overwhelming in trying to trace my mother’s roots.

    My great great grandfather’s name was translated to Willowatz but was pronounced like Vil-yeh-votz. I have his immigration record to USA but I want to learn more. I know his mother was taken by Nazis during WWII and she had renarried. I have no idea how to correctly spell his last name.
