Salve Walter
Cramerstetter?..... I miei, padre e madre: Carmelo ed Amalia, ex di via Giovia, parlavano spesso dei Cramerstetter di Pola, come dei loro buoni conoscenti. Origini forse da lì pure tu?

Hi, Walter,
Thank you for the kind words. It's good to hear from you again, but where in the world are you hiding out these days? Do we have a flag for that country? You are still very much missed on "istria-talks"!

Ciao Claudio,
Cramerstetter di Pola is a new lead to me in my quest of the family genealogy. Vast majority of Cramerstetter, Cramersteter, Kramersteter son di origini datorno Castelvenere.
Would love to have more information if you have.Thanks for visiting this site!
cheers mate,

Claudio Friday, 20 November 2009 18:44
Unfortunately Walter, I will not be able to help in your genealogical search. Of our family group (6) that left Pola in1949, when I was 7, I am the only survivor. Through the years of exile, first in Trieste then Australia, my parents never stopped reminiscing about Pola: events, places and above all lost friends, the Cramerstetter amongst those. I vividly remember the playgrounds of those early years of my life: la Rena, Valcane, Stoia, Dante Alighieri (my school), vie Giovia, Gladiatori, Faveria, but of people, except for my young friends of the time, I have little or no memory.

ps: About Klaus: my lifelong nickname, because of my very blond, Germanic hair.
Riboni: my mother’s maiden surname. To avoid internet political threats, that have been plaguing me over the last few years. I am anti fascist/communist, and sort of dislike centrist too. Cursed you’ll say? You’re right!
Te saludo, Claudio Perucich

I just came across your site by googling Istria and am very impressed that there are so many Istrians out there all over the world passionate about their heritage.

I migrated from Rijeka to Melbourne Australia in 1968 (at the age of 10) with my family and I have fond memories of my school holidays in Istria (Buzet) village (Puhi). All our relatives are still in Istria and I have visited them only twice since living in Australia.

My father told me so many stories of his childhood days and his days in the army during World War 2. It is such a shame that wars can make so many people leave their place of birth, their culture , its people and and take their memories to a new country .

The Istrian language is such a beautiful language , gentle like its people . I am so fortunate to have experienced my time in Istria as a child with my Grandparents who lived through the Austro-Hungarian times, then Italy and then Yugoslavia. My parents lived through Italian times and then after the war through Yugoslav times (now Croatia). Yes the languages are a very interesting combination indeed.

My relatives in Istria still speak Istrian and sometimes Italian and I am very proud that they are continuing the beautiful language so that their children will carry it on.

For anyone interested in having a beautiful holiday , I highly recommend Istria as a destiantion. The wine, the food , the beautiful people , you won't find that anywhere else in the world.

Hello Vanda,
no one commented on your posting, though several people read it. I also live in Melbourne, but born in Umago,Istria.
Though the Guestbook is a quick and handy way to post messages, many of us are members of some or other of a number of Mailing Lists that Istrianet runs.
If you are interested, I suggest you join istria-talks, here are the instructions:

All the best

(27) Attached to this request, is a photo of my cousin Frank Riboni, son of Gina and my maternal uncle Giovanni Riboni (ex Ribarich). I last saw Frank in Trieste 1951, when he made for me a magnificent Balsa-wood airplane (nice memory). He was born in Istria, Pola or Arsia, late 1930’s. About 30 years ago he died in New York, at a young age and left wife, ex wife and children that I have never been able to contact.
I would be very grateful to any readers of this site in the US that could provide me with postal or e-mail addresses, of my perhaps many, long lost American relatives. Thanks.
Claudio Perucich

Claudio Friday, 13 November 2009 19:48
To those that have replied to my request, and helped me trace my cousins in New York, “Thank you”.

Hi All -
I am trying to track down any relatives on my grandfather's maternal side, in the hopes that I can find a picture of my great grandmother.

My grandfather is John (Ivan) Runko, and he was born 5 March 1925 in Gradinje, to Ivan Runko and Ivanka Liubich. Ivanka died when Pop was 4yrs old; the house was burnt down during the war, and all their photos were destroyed.

So - I'm hoping that anyone related to the Liubich family might have an old photo of Ivanka hidden away somewhere?
Details: She was born (also) to Ivan and Ivanka Liubich (prior to 1896) in Kosterchan. The family was also known as Crce and spoke Cirribirri.

Her siblings were: Anton, Ivan, Celesto, Frane, Ljuba, Maria, Josip and Zora.
I have already been in contact with Anton's family in NY (who were able to give me a photo of Ivan and Ivanka (snr)), but I'm hoping that someone out there might have a picture of Ivanka Junior in their possession??

Many thanks ..

Julia Wednesday, 23 September 2009 07:59
Sorry .. should have reread...Pls note the spelling would either be Liubicic or Ljubicich (or also use the respectice accents that my keyboard won't add in..)

I'm a PhD student in Linguistics at the University of Venice, Italy. My topic for the thesis is the syntax of Istroromanian. I've been to Zejane and Susnjevica a couple of months ago (after having been in contact with some local people for a while now) and met (almost all!) the few speakers remaining there. I'm interested in how the language works, and my competence in Romanian (native), Italian (near native) and Venetian (well, I still have to work on that) help a lot in studying a language that I do not speak but can easily understand.
I'm writing to ask if anyone is willing to help me with some data. Not right away, but in the following year I'm sure I'll have lots of questions to ask you, of the type 'is this sentence correct? how would you say this or that? And of course it is far easier and quicker to communicate through the internet than going to Istria every time I have some doubts on the data.
My thesis will be written in English, and I intend to make it available to you all. I know it is just a minor attempt to raise awareness on the fact that this language is highly endangered, but I hope that together with the work that some other Croatian and Romanian professors have been carrying for decades we can, in one way or another, contribute to the preservation of your language and cultural identity.
Thank you very much / Hvala.

Hello! I hope you can get in touch with Vesna Vrsic since she has the done already all the work and project that you are talking about. I am sorry if you do not have that info.

Romanian native Friday, 8 July 2011 11:02
Not so, Maria! Croatian-born and raised Mrs. Zvjezdana Vrzic (note the correct spelling of her name), has not done "all the work" as you claim. The transparently superficial way that her team of non-linguists and non-historians is misrepresenting the Istroromanian people's language and rewriting their history on her government-sponsored web site speaks for itself.

Hello everyone,
I am from Romania and a year ago I was with my husband in Istria for a short vacation. We love those places and the people which live there.
I read about Istro-Romanians in Croatia and I want someone to help me to contact an association of istro-romanians to establish a connection.
Istro-Romanians in Croatia are descendants of the Romanians people whici left our country in centuries ago and I think it's normal to make them known traditions, customs and language of their ancestors.

Sorina Friday, 18 September 2009 03:55
sorry for "whici" - is a mistake, I wanted to write "which". I hope you understand me.

Marisa Friday, 18 September 2009 10:47
First of all, the Istro-Romanian people are scattered more around the world than remain in Istria where only a few still speak the language of their ancestors which has become even more heavily Slavicized since World War II after the exodus of the majority of Istro-Romanians. Since you are in Romania, your best option for an educated answer to your question is to contact the languages department at the University of Cluj where the Istro-Romanian language has been a topic of serious study and interest for over 150 years. They have the archives and probably also the latest and most complete information on the contemporary groups and/or organizations that have a vested interest in this topic at the present time.

Sorina Tuesday, 22 September 2009 10:57
Marisa dear, you do not live in Romania, so you didn't know anything about the disinterest of most of everything that is without any benefit (of any kind would have it). I am totally disappointed by what is happening in my country.
As I said, I read about Istro-Romanians, I was in Istria and I love the place and the people who live there and my wish is to donate some books to those who had Romanians ancestry and want to keep / learn / speak Romanian.

Hi everyone!

I'm new here I have been investigating this wonderful site and have gleaned such rich information on my background. I have been interested in my roots of Istria for quite some time. My father was born in Brdo (near Kostrcani) and I am fascinated by his stories and that of my relatives.

I wanted to pop in and say hi and hope to be a part of the group discussion (once I get over my shyness that is --- took me about 2 months -- actually even more than that -- to even write this) Blushing

Although I don't know the troubles of the past board -- I must say that I find this one enticing and unique compared to the many others I've poked my nose into.

I wish I knew how to speak Croatian (or even Ciribiri) but I don't ---- however, I will be trying to learn Croatian shortly and once I've gotten a handle on that then I will bug other family members to teach me the local dialect of Ciribiri. rolling

I live on the South Shore (St-Hubert) of Montreal, Quebec, Canada

Marisa Saturday, 5 September 2009 18:18
Hi, Sandy.

Your family were near neighbors to my family in that area of Brdo. My mother remembers your family but offhand I do not. Did any of them ever live in Brooklyn or Queens in New York City? I have a first cousin, also from Brdo (nickname Roto) who lives near you in Canada. His name is Angelo Ielovcich / Jelovcic. Do you know him?

Sandy Saturday, 5 September 2009 20:52
Hi Marisa --- I just read this to my dad (visually impaired) and he had a hoot! He certainly does know Roto (I do not really know him but met him at my mom's funeral and my dad's mother's funeral). My dad's first cousins are Babic(h) from NY --Bruno - late Etore - late Renato and Nino (Johnny) from Washington. You can tell your mom that my dad's nickname from Brdo is Keko --- she probably remembers him by name: Cesarino (Rino). He came to Canada in 1951. What a small world -- so glad I took the plunge and wrote big grin Feel connected already FRlol He also has a first cousin in Whitestone NY (Judy Babich) who owns a restaurant. What village is your mom from and her name --- I'll pass it on to my dad.

Marisa Saturday, 5 September 2009 21:41

After I replied to you, I again asked my mother, and she repeated your family nickname which she recalled as "Checo", which had not immediately registered with me before with your spelling. However, you connected the remaining dots for me with names that are well-known to me in the "Jadrina" branch of the much larger Babich clan, a family that was a close neighbor of my own family on two different continents. While Renato Babich married his first cousin Judy Bubolich (thereby making you double cousins), Bruno married my distant cousin, Lisa Jurman (nickname "Matela") whose family I know even better. My own mother was born Iurman (current permutations being Jurman, Giormani and Yurman), and knew Lisa' mother very well. In fact, my parents and one of my mom's sisters were the first people to set eyes on Lisa in the Rijeka hospital the day after she was born! As for Guerino (who Americanized his name to John), he attended the 9th grade with me and we share the same birthday (he is one year older). You will find photographs of some of the people mentioned above, both in group and individual shots, in various albums in our PEOPLE section.

Enough said? I am certain that your father already knows who I am, even if we don't know each other personally. We could even be cousins ourselves and not know it - this is the tragic fate shared by most Istrian families scattered around the world by the two world wars!

Marisa Thursday, 24 December 2009 11:13
Hi, Devon,
Which "language" do you mean? Down through history, Istria has embraced many different languages, both Slavic and Italic, as well as sub-dialects of both of these branches of the Indo-European language tree. We do our best to research and include all of them.

Just a note that Nikola Tesla was not romanian/croatian/Catholic. His father was ORTHODOX therefore he was SERBIAN.

Teresia Wednesday, 16 September 2009 05:56
Well...just because his father was orthodox it doesnt mean he was automatically serbian. Nikola was born in Croatia and lived there his whole life and he loved Croatia. I also believe that his mother was a catholic. Doesn't matter... important is that he considered him self croat =)

Marisa Wednesday, 16 September 2009 12:04
Nikola Tesla did NOT live his whole life in Croatia. He emigrated to the United States in 1884 when he was 28 years old and spent 59 years in that country, dying in New York City at the age of 86.

For the record, his country of birth was Austria-Hungary, not Croatia or Serbia which became separate nations only after the breakup of Yugoslavia which likewise did not exist in Tesla's time.

(13) Here is Maestro Bensi of the band Bellini, shown a few messages below. We have been friends since we were about 15 years old and learnt playing in a municipal band. He continued with his musical career, I gave up. All I can play now is the door bell.

The maestro looks very familiar, or is it just that he has a familiar Istrian face?

its amazing what a small world we live in. My parents are argentine (of italian and spanish descent) and my wifes are Istriani. I have been there 3 times and will be leaving in a week to go back. i can't tell you how many croats i meet who have had relatives immigrate to argentina many years ago. i am obviously family to them but there is another connection one that actually makes me feel a part of them and istria. I only wish the language was easier to understand, for now i'll continue speaking a mixture of english, spanish, italian and some sign language to get by. If you havent gone go, you wont be sorry,

Marisa and Guido, you have done an incredible job with the new Guestbook!

"Saluti" to all Istriani everywhere!

Grazie, grazie. And if you are in a playful mood, you will find that the smiley collection has expanded.
Want more? yahoo!

However, let's get serious again. Do you think we need a few instructions on how to use this guestbook? asking

Gabriella B. Friday, 24 July 2009 13:29
Sounds like a monumental task! Most guestbooks (on other sites) have very few instructions and people manage to post messages - do you really think that additional instructions are necessary?

Remember, we are a dispersed people in many different ways - linguistically, educationally, etc. Perhaps Bruno's suggestion for our website error pages are equally applicable here.
