Can you tell me where Vinica, Slovenia is? My MIHELCIC/MIHELSIC (name changed in 1920s in Springfield and Auburn, IL) family is from the Slovenia/Croatia border area around Rijeka.

Do you know if your Barbara Mihelic had a male relative (cousin, brother, etc.) named STEVEN MIHELCIC? My Steven Mihelcic is from the Lokve, Croatia area (b. 22 Dec. 1876, d. 18 Aug. 1960). Steven married Mary Malnar of Crni Lug, Croatia, and they had 4 children: George Matthew, Leo, Mary and Stevana. Leo is my maternal grandfather. He married Mary LAZAR (whose mother's maiden name was Mary DEMSAR; her mother's maiden name was Agnes Tusare). Mary Lazar's family was from Brezje and Skofja Loka, Slovenia.

I believe that my extended Croatian and Slovenian family from at least the 1850s-1890s tended to move around in the border area between Slovenia and Croatia quite a bit -- although I have no hard (paper) evidence of this (yet).

Look forward to hearing from you! Mary
