In Reply to: John Skomerza came to U.S in 1901 by Jan Howe of 8

Dear Mrs. Howe,several members of Skomerza family immigrated to the US between 1890 and 1914. All of them came from the town of Crikvenica (today in the Republic of Croatia - before the WWI in Austro-Hungarian Empire) and went to Seattle, WA. Name John was quite common in every generation of Skomerza family and in Croatian language is Ivan. My own great-great-grandfather (+1891) as well as his first cousin bore the same name. I do not know where and when that cousin died.
At the moment I am also looking for some members of Skomerza family (related through my mother - the a/m Ivan's sons) that immigrated to the US and went to Seattle: Josip (Joseph or Giuseppe)Skomerza comming through the Ellis Island on April 08, 1900 and his brother Luka Skomerza (Ellis Island: March 29, 1912). According to some procuration of January 09, 1914 at that time he was living in Seattle, WA. Do anybody knows wherebouts of the a/m brothers and their descendants?
