If you would like maybe I can give you some info

First let me mention that you are of Croatian descent... congratulations!

This is a record found in th 1930 US census for Newton, Trumbull Co Ohio (note the last 3 men were boarders)

Name Age
George Ozanich 35
Rosie Ozanich 31
Mary Ozanich 8
John Ozanich 6
Anna Ozanich 4 11/12
Louie Ozanich 2 7/12
Pete Ozanich 1
Matt Steimac 29
Steve Shobat 37
Louie Mihalich 50

George and Rosie were both born in Croatia and, according to the census arrived in 1913 and 1920 respectively. The children were born in Pennsylvania except Pete who was born in Ohio

There is a WW II Draft Registration for

Name: George John Ozanich
Birth Date: 14 Apr 1895
Residence: Trumbull, Ohio Newton Falls
Birth: Yugo Salvia
Race: White

Wife listed as Rose

NOTE Croatians do not have middle names, so evidiently he adapted this name later in life. The Registration says he was born April 14, 1895 at Yugoslavia,.... of course Croatia was under the rule of Yugoslavia from 1929 to 1991.

Also George in Croatian would be Jure, Juro, Djuro, Juraj or Gjuro. A ship manifest is found in Ellis Island records for

Name: Gjuro Ozanic
Arrival Date: 29 Sep 1913
Estimated birth year: abt 1895
Age: 18
Gender: Male
Port of Departure: Havre
Race­: Croatian
Ship Name: La Touraine

Destination McKees Rocks PA to friend Frank PLACEK His former residence was Medjuric which is SE of the capital of Zagreb

The name is spelled OŽANIĆ in Croatian. The Ž has a sound like the S in treasure and the Ć has a CH sound. The IĆ ending means son of.

You will find many OZANIC(H) lived in Washington State;
