Hello again, John,
I haven't been checking in here very regularly and just came across this thread again. I also had a great trip back to Slovenia and actually found the previous homes of my great grandparents on both sides of my family. I have posted many photos of my trip online, including some cemetery grave markers. The ones from the Ribnica area can be found at:http://gorsha.angelfire.com/index.html
You can still reach me at email@example.com
if you would like to pick up this thread of research again.
