My Slovenian connection is to the Oven / Novak / Zlindra (Slindra) families. My great grandmother, Maria Oven (Novak / Arko) emmigrated to the United States in 1899 from Drganja Sela, Slovenia. She married Frank (Franciscus Novak). After his death she married Leopold Arko. She made many trips back to Slovenia and, in fact, left two of her children there from about 1908 to 1924 to be raised by relatives. I balieve her father-in-law's name is Johann Novak and that he also emmigrated to the United States before 1899. My great grandmother was a midwife and family stories say she came from a line of midwives back in Slovenia.
