Surnames: Brozovich, Severinski, Suhan, Rogina, Krizmanich, Michelich, Lovrencich
So many of the names on the Croatian and Slovenian sites are fimiliar to my husband’s family, but we just can’t find the connections. We haven’t found the Severinski name at all and very few Brozovich or Rogina. My husband’s parents were Joseph Rogina and Catherine Severinski; his grandparents were Matt Rogina and Lucija Krizmanich?; and Joseph Severinski and Rose Brozovich.(her parents were John Brozovich and Mary Suhan). Rose’s sister, Mary Brozovich was married to William Mihelich; her brother Andrew Brozovich Sr. was married to Margaret Lovrenich and Anne Stonuga.…. These are all Houghton & Keweenaw Co. (Copper Country), MI families. Any connections here and a direction I can head?
Thank you.
Susan Rogina

I'm not of much help, but my mother's father was William Severinski, whose date of birth I am currently searching to find. His parents' names were Joseph and Rose Severinski. The really sad part is that I have a photo of them, but I can't seem to locate it. I'll keep searching.

I have talked to Susan many times. My father is a
Severinski. His father was Frank Severinski,and his
father also Frank (francis)
My great grand parents were Francis and Mary Severinski.
G. Grandma is a Gasparovich. They were married in
Houghton co. Sept. 15 1906,she was 19 and he was 26.
My granfather Frank was born Aug.15, 1907 in Franklin, NJ.
His wife was Anna Martha Andreolli born in Detroit, MI
Oct. 4, 1916.Grandma was taken back to be raised in Italy
and grandpa was taken to Zagreb, Croatia. They returned to
the U.S. in the 1930's.They had 2 sons, My father Victor
and his brother Paul.
Anyway, the only common threads between us are the
Severinski name, Zagreb(croatia) Calumet, and Detroit.
So far that is all that I can see.
Maybe you can fill in some of the blanks.
Please E-mail me at:
Thanks in advance for your reply,

Maybe this will help connect the family--my sister Patti Hestekin wrote you about our grandfather William Severinski--his first name originally was Valentin(e?); when he was old enough, he had it changed to William. Good luck, Joanie Kerwin

Hi, Found your post while researching my family tree. Gasparovich is my mother's family name. Do you have any information on your Gasparovich relative you'd be willing to share?

Thanks, Nancy

Hi, Thanks for your message to my post.
My great- grandmother was Mary Gasparovich.
There is also another family member that I
am hoping to find out more about Berica
Severinski. I have been told that her maiden
name was Gasparovich. (Berislava Gasparovic)
My grandfather use to write to her during 1976
and earlier. She lived in Yugoslavia at that time.
I am waiting to hear from someone that is related
to her. I have little else as far as info on that
part of my family. The person I am waiting to hear
from lives in Vbrosko (Croatia)The same as Berica did.
Please email me so that I can tell you the rest.
