(258) I was born in Pula, Croatia and came to Australia when I was 8 with my parents.
I love my Country and Pula and want to stay in touch with my roots and culture.
If there are other people in Australia from Pula who would like to keep in touch and be friends, that would be nice.

Sto tentando di ricostruire l'albero genealogico della mia famiglia Sissot (detta anche "Turani") in Verteneglio. Mio nonno era Albino Sissot, e mio zio era Don Stefano Sissot (parroco a Roiano TS). Qualcuno sa dove posso trovare info anteriori al 1900?
Grazie

Just found a 1999 posting from Gianfranco Meladossi looking for information on his grandfather Benedetto Meladossi from Montona. My mother Daria Meladossi was born in Montona in 1921. I would be very interested in exchanging information and seeing if there is a connection between our families.

Hi Mary, Hi Gianfranco.
My name is Tiziana and live in Rome. My mother Lucia Meladossi born in Montona in 1934 and his grandfather's name was Benedetto Meladossi. My mother's father Antonio born in 1901 and he had three sisters: Vittoria, Antonietta, she can't remember the name of the third one since she told me she moved to Turin when my mother was child. My mother's family moved to Rome just after the end of the second war. Vittoria had two children (Luciana and Nino) while Antonietta hadn't.
I'm sure that there is a family tie among our families, Montona is a very small village!
Let's keep in touch, greetings from Rome.
Tiziana

Hi - my father is from the Visignano area, I believe he said he was born in the small village of San Marco in 1925. His mother's maiden name was Cucar and his grandmother's maiden name was Dell'Oste. I would be grateful for any information about any of these family names that may be available.

Thanks,

Tony

Tony,
My name is Frank Bernobich. My father Antonio Bernobich was born in San Marco in 1922. He is now deceased. He often spoke of your family and in fact said they had immigrated to California. Unfortunately I don't remember much more. But I do visit San Marco every other year.
We immigrated to Buffalo, N.Y. in 1956.
I moved to Houston ,Texas where I now reside.
If you would like to discuss more,I can be reached at 713-306-7737 or at the e-mail address listed below.
Sincerely,
Frank Bernobich

(251) Went to Bay Ridge High School with Grace Bortul who called herself Tiziane. Her photo was at table number 8 [Friends of the Groom] at the St. George Hotel, 1959. ON THIS WEBSITE. I'd love to hear from her.

Amanda, I do not know you but also graduated from Bay Ridge H.S. that same year. I was friends briefly with Grace (Grazia or Graziella was her birth name, and I never heard mention of Tiziane) in junior high school (P.S. 51). Someone told me she is married and living in a southern state on the East Coast. I'll ask around for more information.

I read a post on a forum saying that the American pro wrestler Gorilla Monsoon (Robert Marella, 1937-1999) was of Istrian descent. Can anyone confirm or deny this?

Alejandra,
There are many families named Pezulich/Pezzulich/Peculic who emigrated to the USA (New York City) and who came primarily from Brdo (Briani) Istria. The surname in Istria goes back to at least the 1700s.

I am so happy to see this site... I found it by looking up my name and found an old wedding photo of me and some of my family attending a wedding in 1959 at the Hotel St George in Brooklyn... I am very impressed by this site and the others created by the author... I think we probably met each other when I lived in Park Slope as a teenager... I would like to hear from anyone that knew me... Thanks for the wonderful effort put into this. Anthony Stoisich

Hi, Anthony,
It's good to hear from you. I am the owner-manager of this website and creator of most of the pages. Not only did you and I meet in Park Slope (but never spoke to each other), we were in the ninth grade together at P.S. 51! Have you seen our class picture?

Hi, My mother is from Fontane, family name Simetich (Simetic) born 1928-2013 and my father is from Sugari, Barbana, family name Battel (Batel) born 1920 -( ) Istria.
I stumbled across this looking for more info on my dad and his time in Dachau, 1944-1945. This has been very helpful.
Family are still living in Pula and surrounding Istria.
I was there in 1975. Hope to make it back soon. Any cousins out there, would love to catch up.
Dobro Dan

My parents are 92 and 88 now and were refugees to the US from Istria after WW2. My mother's father's family were from Rovigno. It is really special to see a site dedicated to Istria.

I am so happy to find this website. ISTRIA--My Father comes from Fiume/Rijeka( Franicevich) born 1920, and my Mother( Mercovich) came fom POLA/Pula born 1930. I have found a little bit of information from my Fathers side, but cannot find anything from my Mothers side, in Pola. Is there records that can be checked, to find marriages births etc on line?? Look forward to getting a reply,, Cheers!

I encourage readers of this site to do a DNA test. I have done it through the 23andMe company. They test a saliva sample. Two of the things that they report back with are likely of interest to readers of this site. One is that it will show "countries" of your DNA's origin. Mine shows a lot of Romanian, which initially was a surprise to me. It also shows relatives (close and distant) who have taken the test from 23andMe. The cost of the test is currently $99. You can order it on-line and they send you the kit. A key is to allow contact with others who show some level of relationship, and to allow contact through the site. I would expect many of us to be distant cousins.

(I have corrected a typo in the following from my earlier post.)

My grandfather was from Podtsrana, Croatia. Cousins there said that the church records said that the first Cicerich in Podstrana came from the Ciceria area in Istria in the 1600s. There are other names in the town that might be of Istro-Romanian origin (and I might be related to them) - Dumicic, Glavinavich, Vlasich. I had a DNA test done through 23andMe, and I came up as being part Romanian, with distant cousins in Transylvania.
