My mother's maiden name is Miklaucich. Her father was Giorgio Miklaucich, b 1891 in Trieste Italy. Giorgio's family were in shipping and he was sent to London in 1911 to learn the business. I think that the British registrars corrupted Giorgio's name and that he was originally Miklavcic. I know that the family came from Slovenia, and settled in Trieste around 1780, where they built up a major shipping business, which was of course ruined after World War I. Do you know anything about the Trieste Miklavcic ?
