    3. Hi! My Grandfather was Cvijetko Curic born in Kralje, near Bihac in 1892. After he came to America, he changed his name to Florian Churich. He settled in Portland, Oregon. His brother came to Portland, Oregon also. His brother’s name was Jandre Curic which he changed to Henry Churich.

    1. [BOSNIA-AND-HERZEGOVINA] Family Records in Sarajevo
    2. Bastian Dornbach via
    3. Dobar dan! I wrote one month ago because I needed help to receive some family records from Mostar. Thankfully, I got in contact with a very nice man at the catholic church in Mostar. He sent me all records I needed. And even more. I know now that I need to look for more information about my ancestors in Sarajevo. Does anyone have experience contacting the catholic church in Sarajevo? I wrote twice to the cathedrale (katedrala.sarajevo@gmail.com) but did not get an answer yet. Does anyone know of a genealogist in Sarajevo who can help me finding the records? Furthermore, are there even records from around 1885 available? I read that the cathedrale wasn't even finished during that time. Where did people go to get baptized or getting married back then? So it's one question solved, five new questions raised... Any help or information is greatly appreciated! Bastian

    3. Hi Djana, thank you very much! I just wrote the Embassy for Bosnia Herzegovina in Germany. I'll keep you updated. I also received a message yesterday to write the catholic church "Holy Peter and Paul" because it was the only catholic church back then in Mostar so if Elias was baptized catholic in Mostar then it could've only happen in this church.

Or for a living person? You say you searched, but what did you find? Did Bozo immigrate to the US? I find one in WVA and one in Chicago. I also find one in US immigration records. Did Matija immigrate to the US? I find one in WVA records, whose wife was Rosa. I am also finding Naturalization and a ship manifest for this man, who was from Bojna, Croatia not far from Glina, Croatia. There is no place called Glina in Bosnia, there is a place called Glinje in Bosnia If you can let us know: 1) Did Bozo and Matija immigrate to the US? 2) What were their birthdates? 3) If the immigrated to the US where did they live? And prior to the end of WW I, 1918 you will not find Jugoslavia (Yugoslavia) listed in any records as this country was created after WWI.

This is the reply I received from Bluebird Research: "Since last I wrote, we have been in contact with the parish priest for Kocerin and subsequently with the main state archives in Mostar. Neither has any records for the period in question: the parish registers appear to have been destroyed during WW2. Our one remaining hope is the bishop's transcripts. These are the annual copies of each parish register required to be made by the local priest and sent to the bishopric. In other words, there were always two copies of each register and therefore two chances that one may survive. This means that we are now in the process of making inquiries through ecclesiastical archives, which are in Mostar." I've heard nothing else since this report. I would greatly appreciate any help your can give me. Thanks for the Facebook information. Phyllis Important Note: The author of this message may not be subscribed to this list.
