I'm a Canadian of Croatian origin seeking any information on my last name and ancestry. We come from areas outside of Zagreb, Velika Gorica, Turopolje (Cvetkovic Brdo (Hill)
and perhaps, Karlovac. I have spoken to a pro geneologist in the USA. He says we have several coats of arms. I was in beutiful Burgenland in the summer of '94. I believe it was at Schloss Mesternich (is this in Burgenland or close?)
There was a staircase leading to the second level. On the right side was a wall with many shields. One caught my eye: Swetkowicz Kathar 1535. Colors: black, gold, white. I was told by 2 knowledgable individuals that this is my Germanized surname. Has anyone heard of this person? I have a videotape of this (broken now), but when repaired, can send a shot of it. I think you have a great website.
Regards, Robert Cvetkovic.
