Although the Southern United States had Croatians immigrants as early as
1760, they did not organize newspapers, benevolent societies or musical
groups. It was the Croatian immigrants in the American West that had a
continuity of Croatian organizations starting in the 1850’s. The oldest
Croatian newspapers, social organizations, musical groups in America are
found in California.
A major accomplishment of this study was to properly identify Croatian
immigrants as Croatians from Croatia. From 1849 to 1999 almost all Croatians
in California were recorded on official documents as Austrian, Turkish,
Italian, Hungarian, Yugoslav and locally as Slavonians. Reading this book
will leave one with the impression that they were and are Croatians. Very
little reference is made to a person having come from Austria, Yugoslavia etc
as a country, and when reference was found of such, it was changed to Croatia
. The author endeavored to identify the immigrant’s exact place of birth, if
possible. Most came from Dalmatia and Istria. Identification was most
difficult from 1849-1900 due to misspelling of names by American Census
takers, Voting Registers, Cemeteries and other official records.
The study covers Croatian religious, music, sports and media activities in
California and gold rush pioneers, the wild west, saloons, restaurants,
farms, orchards, vineyards, fishermen, music, celebrations, societies,
churches and 1000’s of individuals. It also includes 803 Biographies, 115
Illustrations and a Bibliography of over 1000 entries.
The Index is by Name, Date, Occupation or Activity, Location, Town of Origin
and Reference Source and was abstracted from cemeteries, voting registers,
census, society records, church records and other sources. Includes 45,000
