Is anyone interested in Delnice,Croatia?

+5 votes

There are many families that immigrated to America from Delnice and the records from that town are only for a couple of decades. So I was thinking we should have a discussion with those who are descendants from that area.

My Delnice project is half way done, I was with aid able to buy records no found 9n line so if anyone needs aid with family members in Delnice I'm the gal,  Majnaric, Plese, Tomac, Choop/Cop BRISKI, Gasporac,, RACKI a few one house hold of Polic. Jukovac, Zagar, Zauhar, Bolf, Andlar, a Pavor or two.Snaidor, 'Stimac, Kezele, Simonovic and a surname I didn't know was in Croatia Skender.Dragica, Ozanic, and Marincel. One house of Skok and a bunch of Mihelecic, Klobuscar and last but not least Kerkovic. There are so more but those are the ones in the online records as well.

A Croatian Roots Project just started up this week if you want to join and have a sub project to it be focused on Delnice research, etc.

Rebecca:  I am trying to find records for my great great grandparents.  My grandfather was Juraj Majnaric/Naturalized as George Mainarich (b. Jan. 15 1887), his wife was Frances Mainarich (b. Feb. 26 1889), daughter of Jacob Morrin and Agnes Mainarich.  I assume my grandmother was born Frances Morrin, but I am not able to find anything under that name either.  Thank you!
I tried to join and can't seem to find a way to do so. Any help would-be appreciated I think I could be of service. Rebecca
Rebecca,  My wife is looking for distant relatives from Delnice.  Her grandfather was Milan Zauhar, born in Delnice and immigrated to the US in the early 20th century.  We are have trouble finding any info on his family tree.  Any suggestions where/how to search?
You came to the right person, I have a tree of over 6000 people who lived in Delnice or who are desendences from there on, I can send an invitation to my tree or if you send the exact details of those family members from there to my email I will get all that information to you.

The following is more understandable in Excel which I can email you but the Murvin like line goes all the way back to the 1700's which is first instead of last. The reason for the two house numbers is that they changed in 1852.
