I'm writing in English because of other users. I'm 19 year old law student from Belgrade. My family lived in Bukovica, Ervenik village near Knin, but after all this..mess, they are all over the world. There are(were) Mrdaljs in Bukovica and Ravni Kotari, Lika, Bosnian Krajina, Srem, and all over the world. I found out in B.Desnica's book "History of the Kotar's uskoks" when exactly they arrived in Ervenik, and where from (Bjelajsko polje-Bosanska Krajina in 1692). But I don't know much on their arrival from Montenegro to Bjelajsko polje. There are no Mrdaljs in Montenegro, only Mrdaks. I would like to check before pack and go to Cetinje and Kotor archive. Can you help me? I was in SANU, spoke with mr. Niskanovic, I've red Cvijic and everything, but I need Montenegro archives to confirm the existance of my surname in early 17th century. I have to leave Email here, ok? firstname.lastname@example.org p.s. I'm desperate...lol. Zdravo!
