Have you ever wondered where your ancestors came from in Croatia? Have you wanted to do a family tree? You have tried to do a family tree but “hit a brick wall” because the old folks never talked about the old country? Did your grandparents come from Zagreb?Not likely! Have you ever wondered what the meaning is of your Croatian name? Are you aware that many records for your ancestors from Croatia are available within a few miles of you?
My own search began back in 1986 and since that time I have made a family tree, gathered documents and visited “long lost” cousins in the old country.This has become such a passion with me that I have helped dozens of people discover their family history!If you are interested in learning how to learn about your roots, you will want to attend the first Croatian Genealogy Seminar held in Cleveland.
The Seminar will include:
· Historical overview of Croatia · How to begin · Croatian given names and English translations · Croatian surnames categories and origins · Where to find documentation · Some things to be aware of · Some cautions · We will hook up to the internet for examples of how to look · Included is a booklet of “how to”, examples of various documents, such as church records, citizenship papers, passports, etc.
