    2. This is a Message Board Post that is gatewayed to this mailing list. Author: PBAYES195 Surnames: Classification: queries Message Board URL: http://boards.rootsweb.com/localities.eeurope.bosnia.bosnia-herz/250.1.1/mb.ashx Message Board Post: Yes, you have helped me in the past. 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.
