I am curious if any cousins from Vojvodina region might have more information on the Avramov or Aracki families in the area near Vrbas? My husband's ancestor Marko left Vrbas and came to his sons Branko and Georg in Akron Ohio in the very early 1900s. However, he left behind wife Smilja Aracki Avramov who, as the story goes, did not want to abandon the graves of 3 or 4 daughters. There was also allegedly a son, "Sam" who was at one time mayor of Vrbas left behind.
While Branko became a protestant (the denomination is called Apostolic Christian here in the US) I do not know if Marko, Georg or Sam belonged to a particular church heritage.
Can anyone in the region tell me if the local Orthodox church is helpful in finding family information, or if the Archives in Novi Sad or the Museum of Vojvodina are helpful?
