My grandfather, Marko Blazic, immigrated to the U.S. about 1906 and my grandmother Ana Capin immigrated in 1920. They kept in touch with their families back home while they were alive, and received many photographs, which I now have. Some of these photographs don't have names on them, or have writing in Croatian (which I cannot read), and it would be great eventually to identify them. My grandparents spoke often of "the old country," and when I was older I asked my grandfather to tell me about his experience growing up there. I have notes from our conversations, and have sketched out relationships between families that I would like to better understand.

My grandmother died in 1970 and my grandfather died in 1985. I would be interested to correspond with other genealogical researchers who are interested in sharing information on these surnames. In particular, if there are Croatian researchers who speak English and knows these lines, I would like to hear from them. Also, I am very interested in making contact with the descendants of my grandfather's cousin, Petar Blazic, who lived in Chicago.

Hello again, Mark. I’m not a professional genealogist, but maybe I can help you to get in touch with someone from Podbablje that might help you. Or, if you want, I can help you to get in touch with your relatives that still live there. There are about 15 Blazic’ tel. subscribers in Podbablje today.

Writings on photographs you’d like to be translated you can type (or scan) and send it to me to my email for translation.
