Hello Neville. I have some information on my grandmother's family (Vujcic)....so I definitely can share with you what I know. My grandmother was Draga Vujcic and she was born on Feb. 4, 1891 in the village of Vrelo, which is near Korenica (inland from the Dalmatian coastline). I don't know what her father's first name was...but her mother's name was (I am told) Soka Steta. My grandmother was one of eight children. Mara Vujcic died when she was 17 years old; the other childrens' names were Milka, Jovo, Stojan, possibly Petar, and then two more we don't have names for. I heard that one of Draga's older brothers (possibly Petar) worked as a policeman or the equivalent of a state trooper in Vrelo.
My grandfather (who was Eli Delich) married Draga when she was 17 years old...and then left for Germany and then the U.S. only two or three months after their marriage. She then stayed with his parents and sisters for the next 13 years before he sent for her to join him in the U.S. (Michigan).
If you have any more information...or if this rings any bells for you, please let me know. I also have been told that the spelling of Vujcic varies...my aunt pronounces it (Vuoy-cheech).
Have a good week! Mary D.
