My name is Sonya and I live in Florida, USA. I am searching for records of my grandfather who was born in Split, Croatia. I hope someone can help me find some records, maybe a birth certificate, baptism certificate, school records, death certificate. His family was Orthodox.
His name was Franjo Puchar. He was born between 1919 - 1921. He left Split around 1941 or 1942 to serve in the German Airforce but was missing in action in 1943 or 1944.
He had a daughter he never met, her name in Barbara. Barbara is my mother, and was born June 11, 1944. We are coming to Split in March 2013 to do more research.
Any help would be apprecited. Is there one office you can recommend we go first when we arrive in Split that has the best information? We would like to find some relatives of Franjo Puchar that might still live in Split and meet them. That would be very nice.
