Hi Sharyn, this message was supposed to reach you from Auckland:"Sharyn,
The Dalmatian Cultural Society in Auckland has a genealogical group which
might be able to help you.My guess is that your ancestor was from one of
the Southern Dalmatian islands, as it seems that the vast majority of
immigrants (95% or more) to NZ from Southern Slavic populations of
Austro-Hungary came from those areas.Rijeka was probably the major
Austro-Hungarian port in the Adriatic at the time.I'm not sure but
probably most of them came from Korc'ula and Podgora areas.Good Luck.
