my father Miljenko Jerkovic migrated to New Zealand from Rogotin, Neretva, Dalmatia, Croatia in 1966. He had an uncle Ante Jerkovic (pok Stipana) who migrated to the US (initially believed to lived in Washington state) in 1914. I would like to make contact with any of his decendants.

A small cemetery in Wilkeson, Pierce Co., WA has the following gravestone.

Ovde Pociva
Rogen Godine 1893
N A 1 November
U Krvav(cu??) Dalmacia
Umra. 2. August
Godine 1918
Spomenik Postavila
Braca Matf. I Baldo

It also has a carving of a sprig of ivy and seems to be missing a cross on top. The town's Byzantine Catholic Church probably owns the graveyard.

This man is not mentioned in the 1910 census for the town. I can check more recent census records and possibly Polk's guides to see if family is in the immediate area.

Hi, , my fathers names is Nikola Jerkovic, My grandfathers name is Nikola Jerkovic, who married a woman by the names of Eva rauzan. They were croation and lived in Mikanovci near Vinkovci in Croatia in the panonian plains area. I have been told that they were likely from the coastal area, Dalmatia. I think my greatgrandfathers name may have also been Nikola, but not quite sure yet. There are Jerkovics that also live in Bosnia. I don't know if this helps you at all, as Jerkovic is quite a common name. I'm from Melbourne and happy to respond to your message.

When I return from vacation, I will send photographs from the cemetery and probably some census records. If they look like your family members, I'll see if they still live in the area.

I am looking for relatives of Anthony Yerkovich, who lived in Lead, SD. He was from Rogotin, Yugoslavia. He arrived (we believe) in 1913. Born in 1896 (Give or take a year). He married Mary Setka, U.S. in Washington and together had one daughter, Teresa Marie. We are looking for any ancestors on the Yerkovich (paternal) side.

His letters that were written to him came from several siblings. Dragi Moj Brate! They were all titled. He had one brother that had the word Soldier in front of it. We believe only one sister, Kata.

Any relatives paternal, we need them.

Thanks! ....
