I just wanted to share with you that when I opened my emails this morning, not expecting too much for a Sunday an email forFra Ante Logara from Kapucini Samostan Sv Josipa who I had emailed back in early June.After this I emailed them twice more but had not heard back from anyone.My
mother said to be patient as that some of the Priests had a long way to go to visit their congregations and had lots of villages to look after.That when they had time that they would write.I thought oh yeah, like all my other emails it'd be another door closing in my face. I also thought my only chance would be to travel there myself and camp myself in front of their door step and make a pest of myself.I'd just about given up hope and just about decided to go back to researching my husband's side of the family as I'd been able to go back as far as 1400's on one of his lines and still going strong. I've already complied a book on his tree and just wanted to concentrate on my line. At present I have over 1,000 names linked to his family line. I didnt realise that my Croatian Roots would take a year 1/2 just to locate where the records were actually held.
But this morning I received a document attached to my email from Father Logara and when I opened it, it had 3 pages of names and dates that he had transcribed from the books he has at the Monestry.
I'm still dancing and laughing around the room and can't contain my enjoyment.So I just wanted to say to all you others DONT GIVE UP it will happen just be patient and persistant.Now I have to wait for my parents to come over today to read the rest that I cant understand as he has written to me in Croatian and get them to write some things in Croatian so I can write back and thank him so much.
Special thanks to all that have assisted my over the past year.
