I thank you so much for your help.You've been very patient and wonderfully informative.
I don't know his religion and I have no idea how I'd find out what his language was.Right now, unless this record is the one I'm looking for, I can't even find him.
We think he might have been Catholic but it's a guess.My Great Grandmother was Lutheran.The man she eventually married converted from Catholicism to Lutheran.I was told that Great Great Grandfather was against any marriage between her and Vaso.I don't know why.It's possible he was of a religion that Catholics normally clash with.
He had plans to leave from New York to go back to Yugoslavia.We have a postcard from him in New York to my Great Grandmother in Wisconsin on May 5, 1927 stating he found work on a steamship and was leaving for Yugoslavia that day.We don't have any proof that he left because I can't find a ship manifest with his name on it.If he was an employee, I don't know that his name would show up on the list, especially if it was temporary employment.
I used the www.genealogienetz.de/reg/ESE/dsinfo.htm site and found the location information on Biskupija.So if this is him, even though that would have been a part of Austria-Hungary, that would make him Croatian?I may sound stupid, but I don't know how to verify his birthdate.I'm assuming this is him, so I know where he was born, but what do I look for to find birth records?
