(E) Croatian Genealogy Handbook


Handbook "Searching for YourCroatianRoots"


This handbook, now in its 4th edition, was originally designed for my seminars but people who couldn't make the seminars began to ask for it. The book is designed to help with understanding Croatia from a historical perspective to aid our search, how and where to find info plus lots of other useful information. The handbook has evolved into a very tutorial format, with lots of graphic examples to go along with the text. Here are content and ordering details:
