First of it’s kind, this book is a perfect starting point for all those who would like to devote their time to research their Croatian ancestry, but don’t know where to begin. Authors tell a story of their own quest for data about their deceased relatives, which is a wonderful way to instruct and to inspire those who desire to do the same.
I am beginning to research my maternal grandparents history. They are both from Croatia. I know my grandfather was from Lipice, Lika-Senj,Croatia, but I don’t know the place of my grandmother’s birth. Is there a way you would recommend that I discover more information about both of their families’ history. I do know my maternal great-grandparents’ names, but nothing else. Please give me some idea how to get started. I am on Ancestry.com, but their resources for Croatia are limited.
If your grandfather was a naturalized U.S. citizen, obtain the naturalization petition documents (usually from Circuit Court of where they lived in U.S.). It lists not only information about origin of the person, but also their spouse. That is how I found out where my Croatian grandmother was from.
We are looking for records for family born in Donji Vidovec, Yugoslavia at the time, dates about 1850 and earlier. We’ve been on various sites and have seen that, although there are some records, we cannot find any for our region. Do you have any suggestions of how we can get some information?
I believe that one of my husbands ancestors christening was in Lokva Croatia 1857 and wonder where I may find them and go back in that line.
I am looking for my fathers father, His name is Vinko George Heisegh (not sure on spelling, I have seen it also spelled as Heisigh). On my father birth certificate (Painesdale, Michigan – 1918) Vinko is listed as the father and the country of origin is listed as Croatia. I have looked everywhere but I can not find anything on Vinko! Any ideas???
Hi, I found my maternal grandfather on a ship’s manifest which gave me the town he came from…Ledenice, Croatia. Ancestry has little to no records for Croatia. He was in his twenties when he immigrated. I can find no naturalization records or church records for his baptism in Croatia. Any help you can suggest would be greatly appreciated.
Hi I am trying to trace information about my maternal grandfather. His name was Rudolf Vlah and he came from the Kastav area, and it was under Austrian rule when he was born around 1888. I know the family had a farm and land in the area that was partly taken off them when Tito was in power. He had a brother named Kuzma who went to America and a brother named Josip. I have trying to do some research but can find very little information.
My grandfather, jakov milojevich,was from Grab, Zubci.Birthdate was 1867-1940. He left as a young man and resided in Jackson, California. He sent for Maria Ban, of Dunave, Konavle and married her in California.
What was his mother’s maiden name and his father’s name.
Some say it was Boskovich, Soka, be not sure.
My husbands side was Buca or Buka in Croatia, anything you can do would be appreciated.
