Have my great grand-grandfather as Johann Vrtacic arriving at Ellis Esland in Sept of 1906,now spelled Wertacet when he deceased in Kansas City,Kansas 66102, Wertaset is the SSDI, and etc. Took me months to find any record of Vrtacic name. Ancestry.com helped me with the process. and wish I knew more of his past and family. He was born July 29,1889,and was Austria/Slovenian in Ethicity. They were Catholic and is buried in a Catholic Cemetary here in Kansas. His son(my grand-father)is buried in Fort Leavenworth in 1973. He was in WW11,born 1913. Johann Vrtacic married Maria(Mari)Kure in New York 1907 i believe if this is your relative also would love to know more about him and his family. He arrived at age 16.
