Hello, my father (Matthew Kovac, really Kovacic ) one of his best friends in Sylvan, Pennslyvania (ethnic suburb outside PA) was a fellow named Vic Jakovac. This was back in the 1920's, 1930, as dad was born USA 1906 (first child, a boy to grandma and grandpa Kovacic).
I heard alot of great stuff about the Vic and my dad. Hope there are some friends, relatives out there. The Kovacic family is fine, having moved to Northern California here back around 1940 (before my time).
Best of all and write me about Kovacic, Jakovacs you may know, also Crnkovic, that is my dad's mother's name (from Dalmatid on the coast of Croatia).
