Thanks for the information on location of these two villages. I'm very new at researching and can use all the help I can get. My husband's greatgrandfather born in 1842, stated that he came from Dragatusch, Austria. But later letters were addressed to Dragatus, Yugoslavia. Obviously there was a border change - when? George Muschitz came to America about 1870, can you tell me what might have been the most likely port he would have sailed from. George said his father's name was Peter and we know he had several half- brother's and half-sister's, several of these also came to America. I've checked the Austrian phone book and find several Muschitz and Lerche families, I will try to contact some of them to see if there might be a connection. Any suggestions you have would be most wellcome.
