After 5 years of researching, I recently found the village of origin of my KUHAR family. My great-grandfather, Anton KUHAR, was born in the small village of Srednja vas, which is today part of Podbrezje. His father was Joannes (John) KUHAR (born May 1816) and mother was Rosalia KOCJANCIC (born August 1815). Their children, besides Anton (born 5 April 1853) were Valentine (born Feb 1844), Joseph (born Feb. 1846), Maria (born May 1848), John (Joannes) born June 1851, and Aloysius born May 1857. The parents of John Sr. were Josef KUHAR and Ana VIDIC.
All were born in Srednja vas House #8, the house known as Pavovc. My family emigrated to America.
