Re: bakic hamlet
Seems we have a few things in common.I also have studied ministry, ceritified as a lay minister in the Catholic Church, and hope to continue on to become and ordained deacon.I am very interested in history, as my father stated our family was of noble descent.His grandfather was Stephen Bakic, and his mother was Anna.Her mother Julia was a Vuksic(Vukcic) possibly of noble descent as well.
I am not sure where our family originates from, it seems that either Joseph Matkovic left Anna his wife, or vice-versa about 1920 in Sioux City, Iowa (USA).Anna had my father John(age10) and Daniel(6) - she died in 1923, orphaning them.
Other than a few tidbits which my father passed on before he died in 1973, I have little information for doing a search.Anna Bakic was born in February 1885.Maybe she was from your region.Do you know any Bakic, Vuksic or Matkovic from the hamlet of Bakic?Maybe someone would be willing to check the local church records for Anna's birth and baptismal records?
In any event, I would love to hear more from you.
