The goal of this project is to find people with Slovene heritage and find out how Slovenes are related.

Right now this project just has one member, me. I am Adrian Main.

Here are some of the tasks that I think need to be done. I'll be working on them, and could use your help.

  • Finding people with Slovene heritage.
  • Inviting people with lots of experience into our project.

Will you join me? Please post a comment here on this page, in G2G using the project tag, or send me a private message. Thanks!

My Grandfather, Frank STOLFA was born in Apace, Slovenia on 15 Oct 1898

My Grandmother, Josephine Mary FILIPIC was born in Ljubljana, Slovenia about 1901.

My Grandfather's place of birth is from his birth certificate. However, on his passport he listed an Italian birth when he shipped out on a Chinese freighter as the cook. He learned to read and speak Chinese before his ship eventually came to America. While in port at Philadelphia, he got drunk and missed his ship leaving him behind. He stayed and earned his Citizenship while working for the Budd Corp building trains. His State Department documents state his name as Frank L. STOLFA from Italy. He spoke six languages, with English being the one he used the least. His neighborhood in "South Philly" Philadelphia, PA had six of the seven languages he spoke so he fitted in very well with them. He was often called in to translate from one language to another for his neighbors. After my Grandmothers' death from ALS in 1959, he moved in with his second daughter Josephine Stolfa Wojcik in New Castle, DE. He died 10 Mar 1967.

Info from: Manja Lilek < [email address removed] gt; was as follows: baptism/birth certificate - of FRANC STOLFA (mother IVANA JAKOMIN and father VINCENC ŠTOLFA) - born in VOLČJI GRAD - KOMEN. Marriage certificate of IVANA (Joanna) JAKOMIN and VINCENTIUS ŠTOLFA (with the names of the parents) They married in Štanjel on 24. Nov 1884.
