Good day my name is Steven am from Norway, i don't just know how to say this, am short of words i never new that there are spell casters who can truly bring back lost love,but Dr erigo has showed me that there are real spell casters,he brought back my love after i have been scammed by some thief who claims to be spell casters, i was in love with a girl she loved me and i loved her too,suddenly she started behaving negatively towards me,one morning she just woke up and told me she is tired of the relationship, i was so surprised because i never did anything wrong to her since we have been in relationship for good 4years i do respect her so much just because of the love i have for her,so i decided to plead with her to forgive me if i have wronged her unknowingly, but she insisted to quite,that was how we broke up since 2years ago, i could not do without her because i love her so much, she left me and she no longer pick my calls,then i have been looking for how to get her back to my life, i have been contacting some thief's online who claims to be spell casters, they scammed me of my money, then i decided not to contact any spell caster again,until a friend of mine introduced me to Dr erigo he told me that Dr erigo helped his sister in getting back her love few weeks ago then i decided to give a try for the last time due to the evidence i saw, then i contacted him and told him everything and how i have been scammed the only thing he told me was that am lucky for contacting him that my love will come back to me within 24 hours,then i told him that is not possible, then he told me to watch and see,that was how i decided to wait and see what will happened in the next 24hours,immediately the 24hours got completed surprisingly i got a call from her i was shocked she was crying on the phone pleading to me that i should forgive her,at first i taught it was a dream,but i now realized that this is reality so i have to forgive her because that is what i have been looking for, within the next 5hours she came to my house still pleading for forgive then i told her i have forgiven her and now we are living happily than ever before, i thank you Dr erigo, if you need his help you can contact him through his private mail:

Before i knew what was happening my husband gave me a call and told me that he was coming back to me in just 2days and was so happy to have him back to me. We have two kids together and we are happy with ourselves.

JARNEVIC - My grandmother's mother name was Francis (Franca) Jarnevic or Jarnjevic she married Josip Bradica. I believe they lived in Ribnic, Yugoslavia. They would probably been born in the 1850's since grandmother Mara Bradica was born April 29, 1880.

SESTRIC- My grandfather's mother name was Juliana Sestric or Sestrich she married Izidor Novogradac. I believe they lived in Kunic, Croatia (which was Austria-Hungrey) They probably where born in the 1850's. Since grandfather Nickolas (Nick) Novogradac was born in 1875.

How fortunate to find this website! My dear grandmother, Anne (Anna) Gracan McClellan, died last month at age 102. I miss her more than I can say. She was born of parents Mato (Mihalj) and Maria (Mary) Gracan who left Bosiljevo in 1909 when she was a year old and emigrated to the United States. So many of the documents that survived contradict each other, so names and dates need to be researched. Immediately, I am composing her eulogy for a family memorial in a few weeks. I will return to this site later for deeper information. Let me express my profound appreciation to those who diligently and generously amassed an incredible amount of data for others to consult.

I'm looking for info on my greatgrandfather's family, who reportedly came from Bosiljevo. His name was Franjo Malic, and he was born around 1875. He had a brother named Robert and a sister named Julia that we know of. Their parents' names were Ivan and Ana (Krajac). Franjo came through Ellis Island in 1893 and Robert entered the US through Philly in 1890 or so. Would love to hear from any Malics!

I'm looking for info regarding my grandparents who came to Western PA around 1906. Their names: Johann (John) Spahic and Ana Erdeljac. Ana died around 1919 in Blacklick, PA, hence not much info. They were from the Bosiljevo region and traveled back and forth, as I found on Ellis Island website. I'm looking for anyone who may be related or have any information. I believe they were married at St NIck's in Pittsburgh but it is difficult to retrieve records due to spelling differences. I enjoy the site and will continue to visit it.

Name: Don Ernakovich <>
Date: 2009-05-04
I found this site while searching for information on the birthplace of my maternal grandfather, Marko Radonovic. Immigration records identify many, many Radonovic's (with various spellings) from areas of Bovic, Cermusnica, Bosiljevo, Vrgn Most, etc. My grandfather was Serbian and apparantly married a woman named Martha on/about 1897. The immigration record I trust the most shows he immigrated in 1899 and went from Baltimore, MD, to Steelton, PA.

I would appreciate it very much if anyone can lead me to sources where I might find more information about his young years in Croatia.

We used to live with my grandparents in Korenic Brdo #2. Petar and Franca Staresinic.

We came to Canada in 1970 when I was nine.

My father has 4 brothers and 1 sister - she lives in Karlovac. The brothers are here in Hamilton. They are John (Ivan), (who passed away 2 years ago) Steve, Joe, Nick and sister Marica. My mother has no brothers or sisters.

My name is Ane (Ann) and my brother's name is Ive (John) (Popovacki).

I would like to keep in touch and hear from anyone from the Bosiljevo area, as my parents & relatives know a lot of people from there, but have moved all over the world.

It is wonderful to find people who you grew up with - I know that life has taken us to different parts of the world, but it is nice to connect to someone from the old country.

This Internet is great for some things - and this website is a great idea!

Yo folks,

back again. Did a little work on the wikipedia site. Got a lot of info on my great grandfather. I was under the impression he was arrested and tortured by the German Gestapo in WWII.

But he was picked up by the Ustaha. So, I will post it on the Bosiljevo wikipedia site, as soon as I finish my research. Both in English and German. Matija Bukovac was the first president of the Bosiljevo fire brigade.

Hope y'all have a Happy New Year 2008

I have just seen the website and was in Ahh as to history of "my ancestry homeland". Wow! In Portland, Oregon I have such a desire for any information and was delighted and enchanted with this page. My paternal grandmother's name is EVA SUTEJ, b. 26. Apr. 1887 in Vinica in Krajina. Many Sutejs with abt the same births, could prove to be related. She is on the list for Bosiljevo and Parish Prilisce. I am just grateful for seeing many people with this name; that up until a couple of days ago, seemed to be completely hopeless. I need to find out her mother and father's names. Thank you Father Ljubic for your entry. You seem to be a kindred spirit. I feel exactly like you did in the beginning. Eva never spoke of her parents or siblings. She only spoke her language and hardly to her children. My dad never heard one story about his grandparents!!!! To this day he thinks she was the only child. Inside, I know she wasn't. Also, I have this same "compelling" call to find my grandparents. Thank you everyone who sees this and may know something. I would be grateful for any information. Debbee

Great web site. Found my grandfather Jakov Grguras in the list of surnames. Visited Croatia for the first time earlier this month and want to come again and visit Bosiljevo.

Hello. I am so excited to have found this web page! Hopefully it will help me to connect with relatives of mine who still reside in Croatia. My grandparents, Ivan and Barbara Kasun were born in Croatia and emigrated to the U.S. in the early 1900's. I have one family photo taken in Croatia and would like to find information about my family. I hope to visit in person next year!

I cannot find my family information on this page as I used to before. My family is from "spahici".
Nikola Spahic was my grandfather, Ivan Spahic was his father !
Is there a way that my family information can be found again on the site ?

Hi there! I spent a week in Orisje last summer. My folks fixed the roof on the old house. Man, was I glad I wasn't there at the time. My poor brother had to carry 2500 rooftiles up 20 stairs! And they were 4 pounds each!!! Bosiljevo is dead! The pubs are full! Stari Grad is still there, although it's falling apart! I guess that is our biggest disgrace!

Why can't anyone fix it? Everyone's running when they have a party or need a new roof for the church, but no one's there to fix this thing. Why? I guess we should all be ashamed! But it's still nice to go there!! And it's cool to go to Bosiljevo once in a while, just to see familiar faces! I couldn't tell who was who anyway. One forgets the name to a face!

Bye for now... Steve

Yo, spent 3 months in Bosiljevo last summer. Caught up with some a...holes who were rude to me as a kid (young Pupic and Pizek from the old store)! Wanted to beat them up, but they were just Commie-pussies! That was fun. The village is dying. All the young folks are gone and the old people are slowly disappearing. Oh, you can see Stari Grad again. They didn't chop the trees, but the trees are dying, too. Well, at least you can make the castle out! The autobahn is great! 10 minutes to Karlovac and 40 to Rijeka! It only took those Commies 30 years to build the damn thing! And the Lesce pool has a toilet now! That took 30 years, too!!!!

my dad's family originated in Umol. I've been to bosiljevo several times now and always love it. I am actually surprised that my grandparents were not only the list of people from bosiljevo. Where exactly did you get the names of the people on your list?

good job!
