Hello. I'm Dejan Perhat from Croatia. I'm really beginner in family search and just started my ancestor's research. I just find one very interesting thing. In ''old'' birth records I just find out that my grandfather's brother- Perhat Luka, born 22 Aug 1875 in Smokovo, catholic county Holy James in Jadranovo, and died 19 Jan 1934 in Saint Louis, USA. It means that I probably have some fare relatives in the USA, Lovro's descendants. I would like to find and contact them. I could find my grandgrandgrandfather Perhat Ivan, born 1827 and all his descendants born in Croatia, but I don't have any info about American side of my family. Can someone help me in this research? Perhat Luka was married with Ursa Perhat, born 29 Sep 1875. They had following children ( at least I have records for them, maybe later in USA they had more children): Vladimir Perhat,son born 21 Apr 1899 died 5 Feb 1923. Albina Perhat, daughter, born 20 Aug 1908 Mate Perhat, son, born 29 Nov 1905 Marija Perhat, daughter, born 20 Mar 1909
It's also possible that Luka Perhat came to USA with his brothers: Ivan ( John) Perhat, born 1873. Josip or Joseph Perhat, born 1878 Mate Perhat, born 1881 and sisters: Marija or Mary Perhat, born 1886 Tereza or Theresa Perhat, born 1889.
I just find info that they came on the ship Mauretania, April 27, 1928.
This are all records I have. If anybody can help me to find ancestors records for this people and their descendants, and even some help to find and contact them, I will be really very grateful. best Regards Dejan Perhat
