Great work. I am a grandson of Dragutin Petrovic(h) and Matilda Perisic. In 2004 on a trip to Italy, I took the opportunity to also drive to Croatia to explore the area around Sunger and Mrkopalj. All I had were Draguin's and Matilda's names, but very quickly I managed to connect with the extended family there, who were very welcoming. So I have a considerable amount of information to share with you. Do you have a structured family tree file or site to work with?

Her name was Grace Mathieson born 17th April 1923 in Belfast, Northern Ireland. She emigrated to Canada and married a Victor Stratton? Last nown to be living in Rexdale, Ontario in the 1970's but have not had any contact with her since her father Thomas Mathieson died in 1977 when she went home to Ireland for his funeral. This is the last known time for her to be alive. If there is anyone who could point me in the direction of how to find out if she is still living or if she has any living family, then I would be most grateful for any information however small, as I live in the UK and do not know how to search for her in Canada.

    1. [Canada~Old-News] Surnames: Girard, Deschamps, Vanesse dit Precourt, and Presse'
    2. Roni Miller
    3. Hello, I am looking for assistance, on the following surnames in Trois Rivieres Canada. Presse' Girard Deschamps Vanasse dit Precourt. I descend from Pierre Girard Presse' married Marguerite Deschamps dit Laliberte, April 21, 1760 at Cathedrale des Trois - Rivieres, P Quebec. Pierre was the adopted son of Joseph Francois Girard and Marie Anne Vanasse dit Precourt. Hyacinthe-Oliver Presse' drew up a contract for Joseph & Marie Girard to raise Pierre Girard Presse'. Pierre was born between 1735-1740 and died July 1, 1809. Marguerite Deschamps dit Laliberte was born July 20, 1742 and died March 4, 1791. I have the following children listed for Pierre & Marguerite: Cecile, Pierre, Marie-Marguerite, Jean Baptiste, Marie-Therese, Michael-Ange, Joseph, Marie-Cecile, Francois, Louis, Charles-Antoine, Joseph Modeste, and Marie-Louise. I am actually trying to trace more information on Pierre Girard Presse' I am hoping to possible locate information on his biological parents, and also any other information on Joseph & Marie Girard (the people who raised Pierre). I'm uncertain whether they legally adopted Pierre, if they were actually blood relatives to Pierre, or what? Anyone that could help solve this mystery it would be greatly appreciated. My line from Pierre Girard Presse' moves on into Missouri, and Illinois, USA. Thank you very much. Rhonda (Roni) Pressey Miller
