My part of the Susmel family was originally from Goerz / Gorizia two generations ago. We have done some research and have located a "first ancestor", Vllasich Susmel, in 1748, in the Gorizian parish of San Rocco. We have been told that there are "German / Bohemian" origins to the name. The name is still in the area, with several distant relatives of ours. We have been able to trace most relatives descended from Vlasich Susmel snice 1748. However, we are trying to locate further ancestors and / or collaterals. ¿Anybody else familiar with the name or connected with it? ¿Any suggestions on how to proceed with the search? Our grandfather left Gorizia for Argentina shortly after the First World War, so most records are not Italian in origin.
