Re: Mary CARNEY or MILAKOVICH, Croatian Actress

In Reply to: Mary CARNEY or MILAKOVICH, Croatian Actress by Jim of 8739

LUBONOVIC's in Ohio come from Zumberak (perhaps Kostanjevac) region of Croatia. Original spelling is LJUBANOVIC. I have a very good friend, who accompanied me on my Heritage Tour to Croatia in 2007. I suprised him by going to his ancestors birth region!

Of course Mary was a Croatian actress or perhaps more properly a Croatian-American... Croatian is an ethnicity and American is a Nationality or Citizenship.

Here are Eli (Ilija in Croatian) and Barbara (Bara, Barica or Barka in Croatian) as found in the 1910 Youngstown census According to the census she bore 3 children and they had been married for 9 years They lived on East Federal St, where many Croatian immigrants lived and not far from Sts. Peter and Paul Croatian Church. Have you checked with Father Joe at the church to see what they may have for records?

Name       Age
Elia Milakovitch 42 Barkeeper immigrated 1891 or 1881
Barbara Milakovitch 29 immigrated 1901
Mary Milakovitch 6
Annie Milakovitch 4
Elia Milakovitch 2
Theodor Milakovitch 55 brother imm. 1891
Milos Milakovitch 32 nephew imm. 1900
Mathew Mitrovich 25
Tom Latkovich 31
Joseph Ugrin 32
Mike Brejkovich 42
Sam Shorak 26

And 1920 census this time living on Juliana St in Youngstown
Name       Age
Ely Malakowie 53 imm 1887 steel mill
Barbara Malakowie 38 imm 1900
Mary Malakowie 16
Anna Malakowie 13
Ely Malakowie 9
Lillian Malakowie 7
John Malskowie 6
Mike Malskowie 3 [3 4/12]
